It's Sort of Official: Kavi Sharma Is American Girl's Next GOTY for 2023!
There were some conflicting rumors regarding next year's Girl of the Year for 2023. Back in December, the name Kavika Sharma was trademarked, which was later shortened to Kavi Sharma in February. But in April, 2 more names were trademarked, Nicki and Isabel Hoffman. I held true to my theory that Kavi would be the Girl of the Year for next year, and the theory has paid off, because I discovered the US Patent and Trademark Office website, which lists not only American trademarks, but words trademarked in other countries.
American Girl only trademarks doll's names in different countries, such as Canada, if they are 100% sure they're going to release. Recent trademarks there include Claudie Wells, Corinne, World By Us... you get the idea. But "Kavi Sharma" is on the list!
This sort of confirms it: Kavi Sharma is our next Girl of the Year!
I can't wait for more details to surface about her. After checking my posts about Corinne from 2021, the book author was revealed on September 15, which already passed in 2022. Hopefully that means we'll get an update soon!
