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.

Hey Grandkid,
Hope you have (or have had) a good flight back to DK & catch up on some sleep on the way home.
Next time you're having coffee with that Tassie chick, say "G'day" for me.
See you next year???
Yours in oldness & grumpiness,
GOB

Of course, there was also "Victor Charlie", but that's another story.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Victor Charlie, or just shortened to Charlie = Viet Cong or VC.

Have a listen to the lyric at around 3:46. "I learnt a thing from charlie don't you know".
