Are the counting the actual Milky Way in those numbers? Because it seems like you can see a lot of stars in it

So basically nobody born before 1930 was named Karen (at least in the US).
I wonder why it became popular around that time.
I had a friend when I was a kid whose mother was named Karen, but not really anyone my own age or younger. Apparently it is Scandinavian in origin.
