My name's Kate and everyone calls me Katie and I hate it. They always ask my if my name is Katherine or Kaitlyn ans I say no just Kate. Many think this is a simple name but really It's very simple and unique because people always asume its Kaitlyn or Katherine.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Kathryn but everyone calls me Kate! It's an awesome name for a soccer player (such as myself) because my teammates only have to say one syllable! And It's an awesome name!

01/12/2024 12:09:12

My husband and I are thinking of naming our daughter Reece Kate. IT sounds very cute to me and its very unique. What do some of you think❤️

01/07/2024 22:31:58

My name is Kate and I love it! I like that It's classic and simple. I only know one other person, whom I'met recently, who's name is just simply Kate and It'sort of makes me feel unique because It's not my nickname, but my real name.

01/05/2024 18:30:52

My name is not short for Katherine or Kathy or anything else. It is just KATE. To me, the name represents a strong woman--maybe a congressperson or a president.

12/24/2023 06:44:52

This is my name and people always remember it. :) i've been serenaded many times with "Georgia on my Mind" and it gets sillier every time. If you name your daughter this, be prepared for a bit of poking fun. It turned out to be a great joke in my family, because my mom is Virginia. :D Just a family of states, aren't we❤️ I couldn't be happier. It's a very beautiful name, although finding pencils with my name is impossible.

12/19/2023 01:33:04

i love the name kate but how do u spell it Cate or Kate❤️ i think if your real name is Catherine then It'should be Cate.

11/15/2023 11:42:28

This is my name. I love my name, It's awesome. PLus I don't know many people with that name'so it rocks!

11/02/2023 16:00:22

Ha! Mine is already shortened from Katherine, I'm just glad people call me kate or katie instead of something nasty like kat, kathy, rin, thery, therine, kath etc. Woo my name rocks!

10/16/2023 00:48:22

We spell our sons name Brant, which is a type of goose.:) We too live in Washin'ton.

08/03/2023 09:39:08

My name is JUST Kate. I like it that way! It fits in forms, It's easy to pronounce, and it has a beautiful meaning. I wouldn't want it to be a nickname - I like it just the way it is.

07/27/2023 21:00:34

My name on my birth certificate is KATE, not Katherine, or Katrina, or Kathleen - it is simply KATE, and it gets annoying when people ask me what it is short for!

07/27/2023 00:43:52

I love it. It's not my real name, Kaitlyn is, but my parents originally wanted to name me just Kate but "chickened" out and opted for a longer name (Kaitlyn), so I am considering changing my name to just Kate. Such a pretty name.

07/20/2023 16:29:48

My friend's name is Kate and I think that it is such a pretty name, sometimes I wish that I had that name instead of mine.

06/12/2023 20:40:26

My little girl's middle name is Kate. Such a strong feminine name. Kate kicks butt. I wouldn't want to mess with a Kate! I'd want to be one!

06/12/2023 19:12:16

Kate is my name and its an awesome name, Although people sometimes call me Katherine but its not my name, My actual name is actually Kate LOL. Its a name that can be rymed with anything and cute, I think my name is like the best name in the world for me. Plus, i think Kate should be for brown haired people,,,,, just saying

06/08/2023 19:23:48

My name is Katelynn, I think Kate alone is a very pretty name/nickname.

05/13/2023 09:46:20

When I named my daughter Kaylie, I thought I'made the name up. LOL She is now six and a bit upset that no one in her'school has the'same name. This web site made her'smile from ear to ear. Tks

04/13/2023 20:19:28

I have many grandchildren and one of my granddaughters we call Kate. I suggested this name for her and still I think it was good choice, because this name fits this strong, joyous girl. Sometimes I also call her Katie, which is so cute for child her age.

04/02/2023 08:39:24

Kate is my name and I like it It's simple but I hate it when people call me Katie

03/22/2023 12:51:32

My name, hate the nickname Katie and always get asked what It's short for

02/16/2023 18:18:48

I love the name Kate! Well, of course, I would name a daughter Katherine and then, if she is okay with it, use Kate as a diminutive, but either way It's an awesome name. Kate is simple but has a lot more to it than there is to be seen in its four letters and to be heard in one syllable. Kate is strong and powerful but delicate and feminine at the'same time. And it rhymes with "great" -- Kate is great!

02/02/2023 09:52:32

This name is so cute! Mary Kate is really cute too! That is what i am naming my little girl!

01/25/2023 07:01:38

It is my friend's name and i think it is so cool she luvs it 2

01/21/2023 21:37:12

My name and I like it. It's short for Catherine with a C though - after my Great Grandmother who was a Catherine and always called Katie. I was called Katie as a child and did not know my name was Catherine till I got into trouble for failing to answer the roll in Kindergarten. The only time there's a problem now is when I get checks or receipts with only an initial. The banks don't like 'K' cheques going into 'C' accounts. So never give your bub a short name that has a different initial from tehir real name! Sometimes people ask me at work and I explain that Kate does all the work but Catherine gets paid.

12/29/2022 07:53:02

My name is Kaitling but I go by Kate because I like it much better. But I hate it when people call me Katie, especially if I don't know you!

For me its really just a name not a big deal, but if people call me Katie or something similar it drives me insane its not short for anything and don't give me a nickname that makes it longer than my real name
