Fewer Babies Were Given the Name Karen in 2020

Fewer American babies were named 'Karen' last year than any year since 1932, after the name became a pejorative slur for white women who throw fits in public.

Just 325 newborns were named Karen in 2020.

Karen plunged from the 660th most popular female name to 831st, tying for the 13th sharpest decline among all female baby names.

The most popular baby names last year were Liam for boys and Olivia for girls.
