The name Karen could be going extinct, and if it were up to me, I'd move it to the "endangered" category.

When it comes to naming a baby, parents have to be careful. There's the names that are going in and going out of style, but whatever you decide for the kid, it's stuck with it for life.

As anyone who has been on the internet within the last two years, the name Karen has become increasingly unpopular.

According to a report from Yahoo News, just over the course of 2020, the name dropped 171 spots down on the list of most common bay names.

The name was already at 660 for most common baby names, but it's dropped down to 831.

Information from the Social Security Administration, only 325 babies were named Karen in America last year. In comparison, the year 1965 saw the birth of 33,000 Karen's being born.

I bet if the Karen thing continues to be a word used for people not liked by the general public, the name will continue to go out of fashion.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
