The name originally given was Charlieus Incredibilius Extremeius – named by Lady Dorthe (always lagging behind) Kroghinberger– a noted Danish “Birdo” in the 18th century who was infamous for always being the last person to arrive. This was ultimately shortened to Charlie. Hence the last person (or thing) to arrive is now called Charlie.
