(c) Carlyle Group
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Carlyle_Group
(Founded in 1987 in Washington, DC; private equity; The founding partners named the firm after the Carlyle Hotel in New York City where [two of the five founders: Stephen L] Norris and [David] Rubenstein had planned the new investment business)
(ii) Carlyle Hotel
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlyle_Hotel
(photo; was named after Scottish essayist Thomas Carlyle [1795 – 1881])
(iii) The English surname Carlyle is "variant of Carlisle." Dictionary of American Family Names, by Oxford University Press.
(A) Carlisle
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlisle
(10 miles (16 km) south of the Scottish border; in county of Cumbria)
(B) The English surname Carlisle means an inhabitant of City of Carlisle, "in whose name Celtic cair 'fort' has been compounded with the Romano-British name of the settlement, Luguvalium." Dictionary of Americna Family Names.
(iv) Cumbria
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumbria
("The names Cumbria, Cymru (the native Welsh name for Wales), Cambria, and Cumberland [name of a county from 12th century to 1974] are derived from the name these people gave themselves, *kombroges in Common Brittonic, which originally meant 'compatriots' ") (citations omitted)

One map in this wiki page shows Kendal -- 'in the valley (dale) of the River Kent, from which comes its name': en.wikipedia.org for Kendal -- near the southern border of Cumbria. The air distance between Kendal and Liverpool is 64 miles. City of Liverpool is on the England's side across the border with Wales.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liverpool

My point is that names for both Carlisle and Cumbria are Welsh in origin, though far from Wales.
