Not doing the "Karen" thing, I have friends named Karen, most of them Filipina, plus it's also the name of a native people of Myanmar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karen_people
@brownpau That last one's pronounced very differently, though (to pre-teen past-Karen's combined disappointment and relief, when a missionary to them spoke at our church).
@brownpau Sometimes, and even when it's a clearer R (as spoken by American missionaries, at least) the accent is on the second syllable. ISTR the vowels being different too but Wikipedia doesn't think so and it's, uh, been a few ~years~ DECADES (though I think it's been mentioned on NPR a couple times since).
