Saw the name katienne in another post & wondered if I could slightly adapt it to kitienne? This would allow me to have Kitty as a nn but a more formal name on the birth certificate. Thoughts please...... :-)))))

Erm, no. confused

shelley72 Sun 13-Jan-13 12:13:03

not for me either. whats wrong with just plain old kitty? if thats what you would call her anyway?

Sounds made up to me!

Were you the poster who also came up with Kitiana the other day? The answer is still no. Just call her Kitty, or stick with one of the real names that are shortened to Kitty.

Exexpat that's what I thought also......if so the answer is still no just call the child Kitty!

DuchessFanny Sun 13-Jan-13 12:21:22

I don't like it at all, are you very keen on Kitty ? If so just use that instead of trying to make it a nn ?

Sounds too similar to kitchen, and I think that's what people may mishear the name as.

Queenie68 Sun 13-Jan-13 12:25:13

Yes same poster... Sorry! I thought it sounded lovely... Thanks for your honest opinions.... Back to the drawing board.... This is so hard!!

FaceLikeAPickledOnion Sun 13-Jan-13 12:29:14

I do like Ceryn though which is similar.

shelley72 Sun 13-Jan-13 12:29:54

but why not just use kitty if you really like it???

Kitty is a short form of Katherine.

Yika Sun 13-Jan-13 13:31:21

Just call her Kitty and give her a more formal middle name.

I like it! And I don't normally like made up names.

HDee Sun 13-Jan-13 13:37:15

Ridiculous. We should have a list of acceptable names that new parents should be given free reign to choose from. It would avoid the whole issue of made-up words-as-names and spare the Diesels, Kitiennes and Demi-Mai-Lous of the world a lot of embarrassment.

It sounds made up, but I think it's pretty! Which surprises me, as I'm not usually a fan of "made up" names. smile

Eskino Mon 14-Jan-13 14:52:54

Some names are just wrong. Etienne is a boys name and it sounds like a Geraldine/Nigella sort of "i wanted a boy and couldnt think of a girls name" substitute.

what about Vivienne Kate?

Sasparillo Mon 14-Jan-13 15:00:18

I agree, just call her Kitty if you like it, which I actually love smile xx

ErikNorseman Mon 14-Jan-13 15:23:41

Stop making up names!

HyvaPaiva Mon 14-Jan-13 20:01:19

Kitienne?! grin You may as well use Madeupienne or Forthenicknameienne. Good grief! Just call her Kitty, it's beautiful.

Noooo sorry I don't like it at all

squalorvictoria Mon 14-Jan-13 22:39:55

Ah, I was wondering if you were the "Kitiana" woman as soon as I saw the thread title! Kitienne is equally horrible I'm afraid.

I really think, if the normal lengthenings of Kitty (e.g. Katherine) don't appeal, then just use Kitty!

seeker Mon 14-Jan-13 22:47:30

Kitty is not an adults name. It's an abbreviation for any of the Catherine, Caitlin, Cathleen, Catriona etc or the same starting with Ks names. Choose ome of them, have Kitty as a pet name. Sorted.
