My middle name in Kathryn and i love the way it is spelled! My aunt calls me Allicat and i think It'should be spelled: Allikat because it makes so much more sense. I love the name anyways, if i have a baby and it is a girl I'might name her Kathryn Alexa.

My name is Kathryn. I like it. I think the'spelling is pretty. When I grew up, on my street, one house after the other (with only one person being across the'street), there was Karin, Kathryn, Catherine, Catherine, Karen, and Kathryn! i've always had to spell both my first and last names, so that's just part of my life. My nickname is Kathy. People can call me "Kathy" or "Kathryn", I don't care which. "Kathryn" makes me feel more special, though. "Kathryn" is the Danish spelling. My grandmother was Danish and always called me kah-treen, saying it the Danish way. My father chose my name, and my mother chose the'spelling. She thought she was spelling it like Katharine Hepburn, but she'spelled it wrong! (She prefers K-A-T-H-R-Y-N, so It's not a mistake.) Inter'stingly, a friend named her daughter after me. She had to ask how to spell it because she's from a foreign country. I told her all the ways to spell it and their origins, and she chose "Katharine". I was sort of named for Katharine Hepburn, but with a different spelling, and little Katharine was named after me but spelled like Katharine Hepburn!

My name is Kathryn Irene and i love it!!!even'though most of the time i am called Kathy but either is fine...I'm only 20 and I dont think it is an old lady name. Its Classic and i would like my daughters middle name to be Kathryn.

11/9/2022 11:27:44 AM

I'm Kathryn Ada Mary. Always called Kathy by my family. Other Cathys in school so i went by Kathryn. UsuallY JUST Kathy now. Sometimes Kat. But I hate being called Kath! Makes my skin crawl! I like my name a lot! My daughter's middle name is Kathryn: Lisa Kathryn Marie.She likes it too!

Yeah Alot of people pronounce my name by the way they heard it from the popular yet so old Little Mermaid but its pronounce another way but usually I never tell them how to pronounce it.

i used to hate my name because people from my country can't ever'say it right. they always say "kat-rin" or "katerin.." but when I came here to the'states, I started appreciating my name.. elegant and pure ;)

10/12/2022 11:23:16 PM

I spell my name and pronounce it with 2 syllables KATH-ryn I love my spelling, even'though it is always spelt wrong.

My name is Kathryn and as i've gotten older i've come to appreciate my name more and more. I'm known as Katie, or Kate, to my family and friends and use my full name for more professional situations. I think the name itself is versatile and feminine. I'm quite proud to be a Kathryn.

9/14/2022 10:19:58 AM

Kathryn spelled this way is like being left-handed (which I am). It's enough to set you apart from the crowd but when othe's have it you I'mediately share a bond! I love my name.

9/4/2022 3:45:36 AM

I'm Kathryn, my mother is Kathryn, and her mother is Catherine. Go figure! I am proud to carry on the name :)

My mother's name is Mary Kathryn. She was born in 1931. There were so many Mary's in her'school that the teacher decided my mom would be "Kathy". Today my mom goes by Kathy to her church friends, Kate to her family, and Kathryn professionally. My first born daughter (born in 1994) is named Kathryn Louise. She goes strictly by Kathryn, although the family sometimes calls her Kittyryn or Katrinka.

8/17/2022 8:27:00 PM

My daughter is called Kathryn Louise.I call her Kitty sometimes.. I think its a beautiful name and she'suits It'she loves her name ??

8/11/2022 5:14:24 AM

Kathryn is my name and I like it. I don't like it to be shortened. I pronounce it Kath-RYN. It is frequently misspelled, but what the heck. I like the different spelling.

7/15/2022 2:34:12 PM

It is my daughter's name and I really love it and this particular spelling too. My daughter complains about & is called Katie instead. I tell her when she is older & needs a dignified name on a resume, she'll appreciate it then!

I'm a Kathryn and I love it. It may be a different spelling than the most classic versions with C or erine, but I love it. I can't beli've the first poster'said she thought it was an old ladies name. MAUDE is an old lady name. Hazel, Gertrude. Kathryn is like Isabel. Famous actresses, icons, QUEENS, have been named Kathryn. She'should be proud. AND happy, you can be Kat, Kate, Kay, Kathy. Just use a different derivation.

MY MIDDLE NAME IS KATHRYN It is after my Aunt Kathryn [Katie for short] my first name is after my other two Aunts, Kari and Traci =D xx

Although Kathryn Isn't as pretty or feminine as Kathleen, this spelling is the best of the lot. Kathryn is an old-fashioned way of spelling the name, just as old as Katherine. In fact, Henry the Eighth's fifth wife spelled her name "Kathryn" Howard and she died in the 1500s! I think the'spelling Kathryn is so much nicer than the three-syllable Katherine ... easier to write ... two less letters!

this is my second sons name, and i love it. its different without being too unique.

7/6/2021 2:31:30 AM

my name is Kathryn and i've never had It'spelled correctly on the first try EVER which gets annoying but whatever, and people loveeeee to pronounce it differently like ?katerina, katrin, i've even gotten kaitlyn lol. but i love my name in 4th grade i changed it to katie but ended up hating it and changing back in 6th grade, i now go by kat or kathryn, my friends and family call me kat and new people call me kathryn :) wouldn't change it ever i love my name:))
