The Name "Karen" Is Dying Out As Women Are Deciding To Legally Change Their Names To Escape The Nega

  

Women are deciding to change their legal names from "Karen" after the name has become linked to problematic events.

Since 2020, the name "Karen" has been known to describe middle-aged white women who are extremely rude and racist. The name became more popular following the murder of George Floyd in May 2020.

Originally, the name derived from  greek word that means "pure" with nearly 2% of baby girls being born with the name in the mid-1950s. However, the name now has a different connotation that's associated with racist micro-aggressions.

According to Urban Dictionary, "Karen" is described as everything from "a blonde woman who wants to speak to the manager" to someone who "make the lives of others miserable especially the lives of minimum-wage workers." The website also states that a "Karen" is "a f*cking b*tch that only feels anger and will not rest until her wrath is felt across the entire BigLots, Walmart, Target, etc."

Small business owner, Karen Taylor, has revealed that she no longer chooses to be addressed as her legal name.

"As someone named Karen, when you go home and turn on the TV or go on the internet, you're as likely as not to see your name being misused," Taylor told The Post. "You walk around with a tag that says 'racist.'"

Nevertheless, Taylor decided to change her name to a different one with a Gaelic origin. She is now in the process of making the new name legal and permanent.

"It took me a couple of sleepless weeks to decide I had to change my name," she said. "Karen is a great name, and being forced to give up your name, the first thing your parents gave you, is a big deal."
