Somewhat misleading in my opinion. Ratio of debt to GDP is better.

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


Millions of them

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.

It became really popular starting in 1968. Crashed in 2003.

Never a good idea, in my opinion, to give your kid a 'currently popular' name. It will identify them as belonging to a certain age bracket as they get older. Much safer to choose names that have remained popular over centuries - these are often biblical: James, Peter, Paul, Mary, Jane, Elizabeth, ... You get no idea of the age of a person with names like those. Contrast with Maud, Kurt, Kylie, Karen, ...

Yeah, but those are kinda boring names too. I have one of those boring timeless names too. As do my brothers. They're all straight out of the Bible I think. I guess that means my parents would agree with you.

Maybe I was too subtle

The data ends in 2009, which is where the Ngram graph drops off
