Karla is a girl’s name of German origin. This feminine title stems from the masculine Karl, meaning “free man”. Give this name to your little one and she will know the power of her own liberty, growing into an independent young woman, ready to take on the world.

When a name wields this much influence, it’s an opportunity to give baby undeniable prestige.
