K is for Karen.

K is for Karen.

Karen, yep, that's me. I am named after a cousin with the same first name.

I have gotten to know other women with the name Karen. Some spell their name the same way. Others spell them with a C at the beginning. Others have a y where the e is. √

The meaning of the name Karen, from Baby Names World, means pure. Some would say that pure would fit. They would also say I am pure trouble.

Karen is also the Danish form of Katherine. I'm not exactly sure how one came up with Karen from Katherine, but that's alright with me they did or I wouldn't have the name.


Meaning of Baby Girl Names has a bit more information on the meaning of my name. By doing the numerology chart, my number is 9. Their meaning says I'm a humanitarian.

That may be so according to them, but I found reading through all the numbers and their traits I have quite a few of them.

I could go on with more information about the name Karen. I would prefer not to bore all of you into a coma with such trivia.

  1. Having been given the name of Karen at birth, for my mom's friend, I could relate to this article. I much prefer people calling me K. The only time I am called Karen these days is when I am in trouble.

  2. Pure trouble, that is priceless. My mother-in-law's name is Karen, but she is very sweet and anything but trouble.

  7. I sometimes wonder why I was called Tony, well Anthony. Since my parents are no longer with us, I guess I will never find out. I am the only Tony in the family.
