Considering Katherine (tbka Katie) or Zara for a baby girl. Opinions please and any other suggestions appreciated! I also like Cleo or Sophie but dh doesn't. Really like Elsa but older sister is an Anna so that's out!

I also like Olivia but it's popularity is putting me off

I prefer the spelling kathryn.

Katherine is old-fashioned IMO. I like Zara much more

CammieKennaway Tue 24-Oct-17 21:03:48

I think Katherine is beautiful

Katherine. Kate not Katie.

I love both names, but personally I think Katherine and Anna go better together. smile

Katherine. Beautiful name.

I don't like Katie but love Kate. If it was Katherine nn Kate, I'd choose that.

But I prefer Zara over Katie.

Another one for Katherine

Katherine! Lovely classic underused name which goes very well with Anna.

All your suggestions are great. I like Katherine aka Katie best.

Zara goes better with Anna.

Katherine is horrible.

I’d pick Zara.

DramaAlpaca Tue 24-Oct-17 22:02:17

I love both. You can't go wrong with either of them really.

If you really pushed me to choose, I'd say Zara. Simply because it's a short, neat name like Anna.

mamalovebird Tue 24-Oct-17 22:04:20

I have a Zara. Katherine was on my list too. Both lovely but Zara won!

Katherine is my favourite name with Kitty or Kate as abbreviations.

I love both Zara and Katherine but prefer Kate or Katy rather than Katie for short.
