I'd love to name her Kitty, but would prefer that to be a nickname.

I like Nikita but don't like how that's associated with guns etc.

Catherine is a bit boring and can't possibly use anyway as that's my best bud's name!

Any other names out there?

Use Nikita if you like it!

Anything with a Kat at the beginning I'd have thought.

How about a variant on Catherine such as Catriona?
Or Kathleen/Caitlin?

But I'd stick with Katherine nn Kitty.

Lovely name btw

Oooh Catriona. Like it!
Thanks a lot, the "Kat" names will all be going on the list too. I wish I was brave enough for Nikita lol!

I know two people called Kitty

A 2 year old called Caitlyn
A 90ish year old called Kirsten

Nikita is traditionally a boy's name anyway. I know that many names have become unisex or drifted over to being names for girls in the UK, so perhaps you're O.K. with that. smile

I think that just about any name beginning with K or hard C could have Kit as a nickname. Karen? Kristina? Kit is a lovely nickname.

Sorry, I meant "Kitty" not "Kit."

I know 3 Kitty's - one is just Kitty, the other Katherine and the other Christina.

I have an elderly relative called Kitora.

Kit is short for Christopher, so any of the Christina Christian names.

Keturah (Biblical name meaning "incense", pr. ki-TOR-ah)
