The names Brian and Bryan are now the male version of Karen … because those names are plummeting in popularity, and the switch appears to be tied to 3 notorious owners of the monikers.
Admittedly, this would be rock bottom on the list of alleged crimes committed by Bryan Kohberger, Brian Laundrie and Brian Walshe … however, a spokesperson for Babynames.com tells TMZ they’re seeing a steep decrease in those names.
We’re told since last August, not a single user added “Brian” to their list of favorites. While it had already been slowly decreasing in popularity — it was considered “dated” from the 1970s — it’s now fallen off a cliff.
As for “Bryan,” we’re told it stands a little more popular, but has decreased by about 10 percent recently … and it might be too early to see the full effects of the Idaho students case and the alleged quadruple murderer.
