This Name Is The Male Equivalent of a ‘Karen’!
Ok, 'Karen'. Karen has become the go-to name for the stereotypical rude, obnoxious, and insufferable middle-aged white woman. You know the type, I think we've all encountered a 'Karen' before, maybe not personally, but you've probably heard her at a retail store, hotel, demanding to "speak to the manager". Ok, now you know what I mean when the world speaks of a 'Karen', what name is the male equivalent? Some say Ken, but "science" says that name is Terry.
Fatherly.com recently did the heavy lifting on this. They researched the names of men and looked at their popularity of kids being named that over the years and one name stood out to seemingly mirror the Karen line. Sorry, Terry.
