Synonyms for the name Sherlock. Sherlas, Karl, Charles, Charles.
The origin of the name Sherlock. The name Sherlock is English.
The name Sherlock is an English and Irish name meaning "with bright hair", "with luxurious hair." As the name Sherlock is not often found, such an Irish surname is more used, which was Anglonized from the Gaelic "scurlog", previously borrowed from Danish, in which it means "fierce warrior", "brave warrior", "hardy warrior".
In this context, the name Sherlock will be close in origin to the names Karl, Charles and Charles and, possibly, one of the Irish variants of these names. So in Ireland there is the name Searlas, which is a local derivative of the name from Charles and Charles.
In the character of Sherlock, such traits as discernment, ingenuity and determination are clearly traced. It refers to people who do not wait for good luck to come to their hands, but decisively win their position in society. His goal is always clearly marked, he goes straight to it, not being distracted by outsiders and not looking for circumferential paths. Confusing Sherlock is almost impossible. He is amazingly oriented in the most unexpected situations and it is in such moments that his abilities are most clearly manifested.
Very often Sherlock makes decisions based on the momentum of the second. His strong point is one-time assignments of any complexity. Moreover, a man is most interested in the most difficult tasks. Sherlock quickly loses interest in long-term projects, even if he embarked on their implementation, burning with enthusiasm. Despite this, Sherlock knows how to make money and, as a rule, reaches a certain social status. However, just as easily money falls into his hands, it also easily leaves them.
Sherlock doesn't have a name day.
