I know a lot of people will think its dull but it means something to us and we both like it. It is a popular name, I know, but I think it was more popular 7 years ago than now...am I wrong? Do you know of lots of newborn Kate/Katies?

I know of 1 Katie who's 2 and no other young ones. I'm a Kate and I love my name, I know a couple others my age but never had loads in a class or lots of friends with the same name.

I know of many women my age (late 20s/early 30s) named Kate/Katy/Katie. I do not know any younger people with the name, although I know these names are on the rise again.

I adore the name Kate. It has a certain strength and class to it that seem diluted when an 'ie' or 'y' are included.

I would not let my child play with someone called Katie. .... Joke....against that vile creature Katie Hopkins and her prejudices. It is a very nice name. I know none under 30.

Sorry posted too early. No younger ones. It's a beautiful name and

I like Kate, just Kate.

I prefer Katy to Katie but just personally taste.

I know three little Katies.

Thanks all! Telsa that made me laugh! I think we are leaning towards Kate

I'm a Kate, spent most of my life saying 'No, it's not short for anything!'

PiggyPlumPie Tue 09-Jul-13 14:20:45

I have an 8 yo Katy and she is beautiful!

Love it. But I`m biased- I have a Katie.

Only know a couple who are both around 30... no younger ones

Maybe it will regain popularity after Kate Middleton. if you like it, choose it.

I adore it! Also Kitty.

I was going to make a Katie Hopkins joke, but someone beat me too it!

Unfortunately, it is not at all chavvy and is very pretty and timeless.

Have you thought of Kathryn? It's my name as I never met any one with the same spelling until I was an adult and it has the option if being Kate/Katie/Kat/kitty etc and gives options for when DD is older if she likes a different nn. Just a thought

misskatamari Thu 11-Jul-13 18:35:54

And I even!

I know about 12 Katie's aged 8-18. I don't know any little ones. I think it is a lovely name.

My children have three friends called Katie / Katy. Pretty popular around here. Nice sensible name.

Jaynebxl Thu 11-Jul-13 18:40:47

Should add that the three that came to mind are all under 7.

weebarra Thu 11-Jul-13 18:43:40

I know two who are 5 and two in their 30's. It's a lovely name.
