At the beginning of the 90s hardly any American name was more popular in Germany. This was due to the movies 'Kevin Home Alone' and 'Kevin Alone in New York'.

But only a few years later, the small, blond, smart boy, who could wrap everyone around his finger with his charm, turned into something negative. Because Kevin became "a diagnosis". As soon as you heard the name Kevin in the following years (and still today) you thought of a behavioral and socially disadvantaged student who drove his parents and teachers crazy and had nothing at all from the cute little TV Kevin.
