Hard to get Kitt without using Christopher...

Or Christian etc...
There must be a long name with a 'kit' beginning middle or ending.
But I can't find one.
I like unusual names,Cornish,old English,old Norse,Celtic,or just underused Names. (I don't want an 1980's name though wink )

It may have to be a rather a tenuous connection.
If anyone can find one,it'll be you lot. thanks

I too think of a 'kit' as in tool-kit, sports-kit etc when I see/hear kit.

Sorry, I dislike Kit. Far too much scope for teasing and puns. Tool kit, drum kit, first aid kit, etc. Mess kit. Kit bag. Kit-e-Kat. Fuc_kit.

PS with a double t I just think 'car from Knightrider'...

I know of a Kit. That's his full name. Although I thought Kit was short for Christopher normally.

Kitchener, Keith, Birkitt, Hackitt, Carson, Kitaj

It has already been said, but Kester? There was one at DS1's nursery and I love it.

I have got the same dilemma because I also love kit (not sure about double t though).
The other one I like is Pip, as in great expectations. But not keen on Phillip and not sure you can be a grown up called Pip, I do however know two grown up Kits.

I really like Kit as is. Great name.

FriggFRIGG Fri 15-Mar-13 22:47:19

Yes....much to kill-y

Anyhoo,I've decided it'd be Kit or Kitto,if it's going to be kit...IYSWIM.
I've given up trying to find a long name I like enough.

narmada Fri 15-Mar-13 22:36:12

Killian? Possibly sounds too kill-y.

FriggFRIGG Fri 15-Mar-13 21:04:50

That would be fun...

AHEM! DP is called Keith!
The kids call him Ken or Kenny! grin

mewkins Fri 15-Mar-13 20:55:34

Ooh but yes, Keith is due a revival. Can you imagine what fun it would be to announce that you've called your baby Keith?!

mewkins Fri 15-Mar-13 20:53:50

Kitson has a good ring to it.

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Fri 15-Mar-13 19:51:35

I really like Beckett. <<adds to list>>

Hello Kitto. grin


I used to have an Auntie Kit - it was short for Katharina.

FriggFRIGG Fri 15-Mar-13 19:43:22

I thought it was a bit matchy...

lucywiltshire Fri 15-Mar-13 19:42:37

what's the problem with having an Arlo and a Jago?!

Shr0edinger Fri 15-Mar-13 18:47:58

Nightrider, kit for short

RobinSparkles Fri 15-Mar-13 16:37:50

I agree that Kit is fine just on it's own.

However, what about:



No, thought not.

My personal opinion is that if you want a child to be named a specific thing, then put that on the birth cert. Otherwise the shortening that ends up sticking may not be the name you wanted. Eg, your Christopher-called-Kit may end up by secondary school as Christopher-called-Christy leaving you gritting your teeth as that was the shortening you always hated kind-of-thing.

I have a name sorted for a girl,and I don't much care for Katherine anyhow...
I'm going with Just Kit,or Kitto...maybe.
