Karen Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Feminine; USAGE: Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, German, English; PRONOUNCED: KAH-ren (Danish), KA-ran (German), KER-an (English), KAR-an (English). Origin Danish, English, Scandinavian, Swedish: Pure, innocent. Danish short form of KATHERINE. It became common in the English-speaking world after the 1930s. — Karen is a variant of Katherine. Katherine originates in Greek language and means “chaste, pure”. It has been one of the most popular feminine given names over centuries and with various spellings all around the world. Historically, it was a favorite name, especially in Christian world. — Karen is the Danish equivalent of Katherine, which the English adopted from the French Catherine. The French were among the heaviest users of the female name Catherine in medieval times thanks to the popularity of a 4th-century Christian saint martyred in Alexandria, Egypt.
The French would adopt saint names as a protective measure for their children, and they spread many of these names to England after the Norman Invasion. — This name derives from the Ancient Greek name Aikaterīine, which in turn derives from katharos, meaning “clean, clear, pure”. In turn, the name means “pure, clear of dirt, clean of shame or guilt, purified”. It is linked to “Hekátē (Ἑκάτη)”, an ancient goddess most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy and sorcery. All names linked to this root are popular in historically Christian countries.
