A man and his wife disagreed on naming their unborn daughter after her late mother, whose name happens to be Karen. The man was hesitant to name his daughter Karen because of the negative connotations that come with the name due to recent internet memes. He did not want his daughter to be bullied throughout her life. However, his wife was insistent on the name as it was a tribute to her late mother. After a talk, they decided to name their daughter after both of their mothers' shared middle name, Elizabeth. This sparked a debate among social media users whether the man was right in vetoing the name Karen. Some argued that the meme will die out by the time the child is old enough, while others believed that the father had the right to veto any name that could potentially harm their child.
