Cornish: topographic name from Cornish carn ‘cairn’, or a habitational name from any of several places in Cornwall named Carne from this word. French: metonymic occupational name from Old Picard carne ‘hinge’ (Old French charnel). French (Carné): nickname for a thin man or alternatively for a fat one.
