Fewer and fewer parents want to name their kid Karen

Somebody call the manager because the name Karen continues to dwindle in popularity (for obvious reasons).


From the Today Show:

The name Karen is struggling to keep up with the times.

In the 1960s, Karen was the third-most popular name among baby girls born in the United States, but it has been sputtering in recent years, with 2020 hitting the name particularly hard.

Last year, only 325 newborn girls were named Karen, making it the 831st most popular name among babies, according to the Social Security Administration. That’s a drop of more than 170 spots from 2019.
