@kev In France, the "Kevin" first name got a big popularity during early 90's (mainly because of Kevin Costner and McAllister). It was the most given name in 1991 with 14 000+ children according to Wikipedia.

It's also a cliché of an immature annoying teenager here, with a local variant named "Jean-Kevin". "Jean-Kevin" is usually the son of Madame Michu, another cliché for people who have absolutely no computer knowledge. Mostly used in techs discussions.

@Wivik same here in the UK. There’s a comedian called Harry Enfield who did a sketch in the 90s where he played and obnoxious (but funny) teenager called Kevin.

In fact, there was an entire film - Kevin & Perry Go Large.
