Meaning:Fortunate, blessed; Free man
Kari is a deceptively hip gender-neutral name whose roots reveal a touch of the divine. Greek in origin, Kari comes from the ancient name Makários which means "fortunate" or "blessed." It was a name so greatly interwoven with an unending abundance that the ancient Greeks used Makarios to describe the privilege of their gods. If being synonymous with supreme pleasures worthy of Mount Olympus feels too out of reach for Kari, they mind a more tangible meaning in the German Karl, meaning "free man."
