Melissa Boyen has found evidence that we are of German descent. Our ancestral family name was Kornlein, which is pronounced like Kernline. Kernline, over time, was Anglicized to Carnline. Carnline was shortened to Carnley by some family members. That branch of the family calling itself Carnline has the name more closely resembling the ancestral one.
