Kitty is on our shortlist.
Only, though I love Kitty, I'm not sure if it is more of a nickname than a 'proper' name.
What do you think?
Neither of us LOVE Katherine which I guess is the obvious long version. Anything else that Kitty can be short for?

Kitty can be short for Caitlin or Kathleen, at least it can in my family!

Kitty is nice on it's own, I think it's become a name in it's own right.

Kitty is very nice.

I think the Spanish version is pretty: Catalina. Could be shortened to Kitty or Lina.

Absolutely love Kitty. Really pretty name.

It's pretty but a bit little girly, I thin you need a grown-up name too.

I like Caitlin.

hmm, Caitlin, Catalina, Kathleen & Katrina I all like, but not really really like.

Our other top choice is Cecily and (encouraged by the other thread that's going at the moment) I'm being tempted back to that.
I know Kitty is being used as a name in its own right, but I think I agree with hanaflower & castille that it would be a nickname, not the full name she could use when she wanted to....
.. and without a full name that I love, I think we might have to leave it sad

I think Kitty is a lovely name and wouldn't think it needs to be short for something...

Anne Frank called her diary Kitty.

Was just saying - it makes me think of someone you can rely on and confide in.

I like Kitty verymuch though I think I would put a longer name on the bc; love Kathleen as a suggestion.

FairLadyRantALot Fri 19-Sep-08 13:32:00

I know a one y/o called Kitty - I think it's cute.

wotulookinat Fri 19-Sep-08 13:38:04

I should have been a bit more clean, FairLady lol grin
I think it's a nice name - pretty.
My cat is called Terry. Doesn't mean that it can't be a human name too!

lol...our Kitten finally received it's name...originally she was meant to be Ziva, but ys could jsut not pronounce it for some strange reason, and she is now caled Raven, which is obviously also a human was Ziva, though
