Caroline was brought to England by Caroline of Anspach, the German queen of George II, in the 18th century. It has become a classic and timeless name for girls, conferring a special status for those considered American royalty. John F. and Jackie Kennedy named their daughter Caroline, as did Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco. Variations include Carolyn, Karoline and Carolina. Today parents are more likely to use the entire name or Carrie as a nickname (instead of Carol).
