Tim a Google search showed the following:

Where did the name come from? In 2010 an anonymous person began a Twitter account for the San Francisco Fog, inspired by the fake BP public relations account that appeared after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that year, and named “Karl the Fog” after the misunderstood “Karl the Giant” in the 2003 film Big Fish.

There also seems to be some tie in with Herb Caen but I'm not too clear on it.

Overall a harmless and interesting name for the fog
