Not meme related, but do you suddenly hear the word "tenet" now in casual conversations not pertaining to the movie? Like, I suddenly hear it on TV and in movies.

There's a name for this phenomenon and I forget what it is.

Absolutely, and I always check if there's a door opening nearby.

Got it! It's called the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon.

This could honestly be its own topic for a Nolan movie, haha. Creating a "meme" word and subliminally planting it (like Inception) and tracking how widespread and viral it becomes in a culture.

Man used it himself. From around 2 months before the movie title was officially announced. '..violate some of the tenets of it..'
