      2 Negative Comments

  • "It's my husband's name. I think the meaning makes it a frivolous name to give a child. It's also very associated with Barbie dolls which is unfortunate. He's a good guy and deserved a better name." Feb. 26, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's my wonderful husband's name, but I really don't like it and he also. It really doesn't fit him, it isn't in my style, and the last thing is that my name is Barbara, so people often laugh that we are Barbie and Ken. We hate it. Ken is British, I am Polish, when we are in Poland, people there rather seldom associate our names with Barbie and Ken. Though I like when Ken calls me his "Barbie Girl"."
