This might be a stupid question but...

1. Why are they called the Carmines?

2. Is Hawk the only one to say this?

1. Carmine is another word for red.

2. Hawk says it a lot, but others use it too.

Indeed. Pale Hose vs. Carmine Hose was an old monicker, and now its been shortened to just the Carmines.

More precisely, carmine is a specific shade of red. However, since I don't know the difference between carmine and crimson, don't ask me what shade.
