    Nicknames for Catherine

    Two questions:
    1) What are some nicknames for Catherine?
    2) Would Catherine nn Erin work?

    Cat is my favorite nickname for Catherine. There's also Cate, Catie, Cathy. I do think Erin could work but it seems like a stretch. If I wanted to call a baby Erin, I would just name her Erin.
    Mom to Alexander Patrick (11), Madelyn Esther (8), Genevieve Susan (3), and Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014). Expecting #5 (a girl) in May 2015 -- Bridget Dorothy or Penelope Jane.

    I agree with the pp about Erin. I think it works alright, and it's all in there, but why not just use Erin? It's its own name.

    For nicknames:

    Cate
    Cat
    Kit
    Kitty
    Cathy
    Cath
    Catie
    Kay
    Wren/ Rin
    Caff
    Catie Did (like the insect)

    I agree that Erin is a bit of a stretch simply because it's a well-known name on its own. But for a similar sound, what about Rin or Rinn? That's been my favorite nickname for Catherine for a long time-it's more unique than Cat or Cate or Catie or Cathy, though I think Cate is also adorable. I also know a girl named Kathleen who goes by Kaffey, and I really like it, so Caffey might be a possibility, though I think most people would go, "Did you say Cathy?" until they got used to it. Overall, I say Rin.
