Can I have your opinion on the names kitty and India? Still undecided!

PurpleDaisies Thu 21-Jan-16 22:37:38

I don't like India but Kitty is a lovely name.

Sophronia Thu 21-Jan-16 22:44:23

I like Kitty but not India

Wishful80sMontage Thu 21-Jan-16 22:46:25

Love kitty as nn for Catherine/Katherine not keen on India

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Thu 21-Jan-16 22:47:01

Both gorgeous. Sorry not helpful

SnuffleGruntSnorter Thu 21-Jan-16 23:01:30

I like kitty as a Katherine nickname, not too keen on India

iciclewinter Thu 21-Jan-16 23:20:32

Not particularly keen on either, but Kitty is worse.

iciclewinter Thu 21-Jan-16 23:26:46

Sorry if that was a bit blunt blush

Borninthe60s Thu 21-Jan-16 23:36:37

Kitty love
India dislike

Depends where you're from, let's be honest. Kitty would be a definite no here in Glasgow.

SnuffleGruntSnorter Fri 22-Jan-16 00:06:49

Whats wrong with kitty in Glasgow? Does it mean something else in Scotland? (Ignorant southerner)

Kitty is fine if it's a nn for something else eg. Katherine, I wouldn't use it as a standalone name. It sounds a bit cutesie for an adult woman IMO. Dislike India, sounds too try hard.

I think India is referring to specific country which situated in south Asia.
Kitty is a good name.

CelestiaLuna Fri 22-Jan-16 07:53:47

Love India and like Kitty

Both beautiful names

Agree with PPs. Kitty is cute as a nickname, but I'd not use it as a stand-alone name.

I don't care for India as a name at all.

Kitty is nice if the 't's are pronounced properly, awful if not! That would massively put me off. So for that reason, I'll vote for India, which is a lovely name too x

India is nice if it has some special meaning or connection to you or your family, otherwise, meh. My DM was Kitty or Kit, so I am biased! (Like it, it has a nice 50s vibe for me. I can see my Mum in her Raybans, smoking a long cigarette and looking v.sophisticated and Hepburn-ish. Though she wasn't at all, really!)

Great comments! 2 of my other daughters are Phoebe and Florence so think it goes rather well...

storm1974 Fri 22-Jan-16 18:11:50

As I kitty!

TheCatsMeow Fri 22-Jan-16 18:12:30

I like Kitty, and I like it as a standalone name.

Vixxfacee Fri 22-Jan-16 18:12:31

Kitty is awful. India is ok.

DontWorryBaby Fri 22-Jan-16 18:15:25

India just reminds me of that dafty Katie Hopkins on This Morning criticising kids' names... Went something like:

Katie: I can't stand geographical names; Paris, Brooklyn etc
School: Isn't your daughter called India?

Love Kitty.

I'm afraid I have the same Katie H connection with India. Indy is cute though.

My friend has a Florence and nearly picked Kitty but went with Nancy at the last minute! Funny you would similar tastes.

Honeyava Mon 25-Jan-16 04:32:18

No name is awful I think. Some names are not loved by you, maybe others have great affiliations with them.
