So I have finally found a name I love... But I want opinions. Some say it sounds too Eastern European, my argument is my grandfather was Czech ha.

Anyway the name...

Love it.

I know someone with that name. I did initially assume she was Polish or Eastern European because of it, but she's not.

EllenTheEgret Wed 09-Mar-16 21:13:17

RomiiRoo Wed 09-Mar-16 21:18:20

I know one and she isn't Eastern European and carries it off beautifully.

Nice name.

I like it (and I am extremely fussy with names!)

My childhood imaginary friend was called Katya, great name grin

SaveSomeSpendSome Wed 09-Mar-16 21:33:58

How is it pronounced?

Is it Kat- ya!

If so i dont really like it

OhShutUpThomas Wed 09-Mar-16 21:34:58

It's pronounced Katcher.

I know someone with this name - I love it but couldn't use it because of friend.

Go for it, it's a lovely name smile

Nope. Not feeling it. Sounds awkward and made up.

AnnaMarlowe Wed 09-Mar-16 21:49:57

"made up????" shockconfused

It's a very well known and popular Russian name, usually short for Yekaterina.

In German or Scandinavia spelt Katja I think.

Not even that usual in the UK, ever hear of Katya Adler (BBC European Editor? )

Thank you!! I used to watch Neighbours for all my sins, and yeeears back there was a 'Katya' which is where i got it from. Daddy is Nigerian so baby will be mixed race, not that that really makes a difference but my point is she won't look 'typically' British so perhaps she'll carry it off.

My friend is katja- I like it with the j. She pronounces it more Kat/ e/ ya

poppingcandy89 Wed 09-Mar-16 21:58:42

My middle name is Jana (Yana) after Czech cousin but people cannot pronounce it for love nor money, the 'J' confuses them ha so that's why I'd spell with a 'y'

JudgeJudySheindlin Wed 09-Mar-16 22:04:16

Go for it! It is a beautiful name

poppingcandy89 Wed 09-Mar-16 22:08:49

Fab fab, I'm pretty sure this might be 'the one!'

Never been that bothered about how popular a name is, or set on having an unusual name (son is George), as far as I'm concerned if I like a name I couldn't care less how many others share that name.

But I just love Katya smile smile
