Continuing a strong tradition of transforming family names into first names, especially for boys, Karter is an alternative, unique spelling of Carter. Perhaps from the Scottish or Irish cairt meaning ‘cart’, it travelled from Ireland to the new world in the 19th century. Although a very common surname, it is still a rather original and strong-sounding first name for your little boy.
