Explanation: I don't think there is any hard and fast rule for rendering names.
What do we call the emperors of Brazil in the 19th century?
Dom Pedro I and Dom Pedro II. Not Peter.
We don't translate Joao as "John" or Marco as "Mark."
But we do speak of St. Ignatius Loyola and St. Peter Claver.
so in principleit could be Charles or Carlos.
You may end up going with Charles, but before doing so I'd suggest you consider "Saint Carlos." Carlos is his name after all.
