Carolina 1663, N.Amer. colony named for King Charles II (the L. form of the male proper name is Carolus). Earlier Fr. colonists called the region Caroline (1564) in honor of Charles IX, King of France. A 1629 grant here by Charles I of England was named Carolana. The original site of the name is modern S. Carolina and the tract originally included N. Carolina and Georgia; North Carolina first used 1691, in ref. to settlements made from Virginia. The official division into north and south dates from 1710.
