So, how about these 3 names, which one do you all prefer?

India is a lovely name - but it's a country.

And kitty is a cat.

India, such a lovely name!

I would choose Katherine/Catherine nn Kitty.
If you just wanted to use Kitty on its own, I'd choose India.

I wanted a Jemima - Love Kitty, a few of those about - India bit dated from the 80's

I'd go for Katherine nn Kitty, but not Kitty on its own.

Jemima would be my next choice.

India would be a long way down the list.

Kitty is my favourite nickname for Katherine (or its variants) but I wouldn't use it on its own.

I also like Jemima (although it might be seen differently in the US due to having racist cultural connotations there, if that's at all relevant to you). Not keen on India as a name.

Katherine nn Kitty (not kitty on its own), or Jemima. Not India. The Indias I know end up called indie which I don't like. Mima a nice nn for jemima.

I know a 5 year old kitty. It's a cute name and it suits her well but I can't imagine it working well on a 30 year old. There's something a bit sex worker about it I think blush

Kitty, it was my great gran's name. I also like Jemima a lot, not keen on India.

I'll let my great gran know - she'll be delighted!! All 92 year olds need extra income grin

They all sound like cat names to me, sorry. Jemina at a push.

Kitty. Although my beautiful cat is called that! But to be fair ds2's name is often used for a dog's name.

1. Jemima
2. Kitty
3. India

Kitty is my favourite name. I love India and Jemima too.

Marnie is my second favourite name, any good?

thanks for all your comments! Really interesting to have anonymous verdicts as family seem to put me off everything i like!!

Billington Mon 15-Feb-16 11:00:12

I think they are all nice names, but India tops the list.

My advice though is just go with whatever name you love the most - don't be put off by family opinions. Not everyone is going to love the name you have chosen, but it doesn't much matter :-)

SM hats one DD name - I don't care!! It suits her and she's the only one in school -
