So no one liked Ocean or Oceana...

But what about Catkin? I like quirky names as you can tell.

Just Catkin, not short for Catherine.

Thoughts welcome

Catkin would be a no no for me - they aren't particularly nice looking or nice smelling, no petals just weird droopy things and are also called ament which means thong.

Go with Catrin, much better

Catkin- no.
Catrin- yes.

Never heard is at a name except in relation to those yellow bud things. On a human it sounds more like a term of endearment.

Catkin, sorry no way. More of a pet's name. Imagine filling in a CV for a really serious job and putting Catkin as your name.

Catrin on the other hand is lovely.

Catkin no.... me on the other hand smile

I like the sound of Catkin; it's a name from nature on a par with Daisy or Rowan; it's spelled the way it sounds, which is always good; and it's unusual without sounding bizarre.

But somehow, I don't think it would be easy growing up as a girl named Catkin because it sounds like a pet name, rather than a "real" name - as someone said, it would suit a kitten. I think a Catkin would be constantly explaining that it was actually her name and not a shortening of Catherine, for example.

Did you say you have a Blossom? You can't, seriously, have Blossom and Catkin.

Step away from those pregnancy hormones...........
