Children of the 80s

Last week at the bar, I was introduced to a friend’s boyfriend. There was a group of us at our end of the table, so we were introduced en masse like so: “Luke, these are my friends Katie, Carrie, and Kelly.”

What was it about the 80s that make the hard “K” sound so appealing? Going down my gChat list is the same, since people are listed by first name. Karyn, Kat, Katherine, Katie, Katie, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kim. Plus a coupla Carrie’s. And that doesn’t include Facebook.
