I'm guessing you meant "my name is Toby" and not "my name Toby." Anyway, I know this Anup guy was just trying to help but I don't think he's up on pop culture. "My name is Toby" is probably referencing to the mini series 'Roots' where an African whose real name is Kunta Kinte is taken into slavery and has his name changed to Toby.

At one point the slave owner is whipping him and telling him that his name is Toby to which "Toby" responds "My name is Kunta Kinte". Now that the intro out of the way, the whole "My name is Toby" thing is obviously in reference to that. I can't remember exactly what show it was but I seem to remember a comedy show where a white guy is upset about something and he says something to a black guy like "and Kunte Kinte over here" and the black guy says "uhh my name is Toby" Its pretty funny.

A very popular male name Charles is pronounced charlz. It is of Old German origin, and its meaning is "free man." From "karl", similar to Old English "churl", meaning "man, serf."

The first Holy Roman Emperor (seventh to eighth century) Charlemagne (Latin Carolus Magnus, meaning "Charles the Great") was a powerful Germanic leader who created a more ordered society out of the chaos that followed the fall of Rome. He united France and much of central Europe. His widespread fame gave rise to many forms of his name.

Charles is the French variant of Carolus or Karolus, adopted by the English especially since the 17th-century reigns of kings Charles I and II. Charles and its variant forms have been favored by the royalty of several countries, including the present Prince of Wales.

Famous personalities who bear this name include Naturalist Charles Darwin; French President Charles de Gaulle; author Charles Dickens; actor Charlie Chaplin; basketball player Charles Barkley.
