For a boy... but just as a name in its own right rather than a nick name for Christopher?

I like it smile

I think it’s an okay nickname but in my opinion it doesn’t stand well on its own. Seems quite weak as a full name, if you get me, but I do love a strong, unusual name, so just personal preference.

Bonnieb168 Sun 04-Feb-18 13:29:04

Yes that’s what I’m not sure of @kingprawn! But I don’t really like the name Christopher!

As long as your surname isn't Kat 😉

Love the name Kit. Always wanted it as a short form for Christian.

bonbonours Sun 04-Feb-18 13:34:14

I like it a lot, but possibly influenced by a very dear friend with that name

It’s ok, but seems to be a very ‘of the moment’ name. There’s 3 in my NCT group, and a kitty.

Love it. It was on our list for ds.

Bonnieb168 Sun 04-Feb-18 13:38:04

Ah is that so, didn’t realise it was popular! I don’t know any other than a man in his 50s where it’s used as a nick name!

I taught a Kit. The name suited him. His mum called him Kit Kat and we had a joke about it being his chocolate!

WizardOfToss Sun 04-Feb-18 13:43:24

I absolutely love it, and it would have been my first choice for a boy - though it breaks my rule about short forms as proper names!

JohnnyMcGrathSaysFuckOff Sun 04-Feb-18 13:45:37

I like it.

If you don't like Christopher there are also Christian, Christophe/ Kristof?

JaneJeffer Sun 04-Feb-18 13:47:31

I just think Knight Rider!

caribari72 Sun 04-Feb-18 13:49:22

The popularity of Game of Thrones! Is "Jon Snow" played by a not unhandsome guy called Kit?

mischiefinprogress Sun 04-Feb-18 13:49:55

I like it! Probably increased in popularity lately because of Kit Harrington aka Jon Snow in Game of Thrones

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 04-Feb-18 13:50:49

Like it, but not only as KIt. Needs to be short for something for me.

Winteriscoming18 Sun 04-Feb-18 13:53:02

caribari72 How can you not say kit harington is not handsome hmm

TheDailyMailIsADisgustingRag Sun 04-Feb-18 13:57:23

The Rooneys have ruined it for me.

How about Kester? Could shorten to Kit or Kes?

She said “not UNhandsome”! I had to scroll back as was so incredulous that anyone could say he wasn’t handsome grin!

nationalgeographicnovel Sun 04-Feb-18 14:00:58

I love it but like a pp possibly influenced by knowing a Kit, who is awesome. It's short for Christopher but he never uses that.

thegreylady Sun 04-Feb-18 14:03:48

Short for Kester perhaps (old form of Christopher)
I like Kit

treesaregreenandblue Sun 04-Feb-18 14:20:14

Cute x
