Kate but not Catherine

I'd personally probably investigate assorted international variants: Caitlin, Katia, Kathleen, Katerina, Katja, Catalina, Katrina... etc. there's a thousand. But that's because I think some of the full names have more flexibility and I'm not really a nickname-as-full-name person.
I do like Kate. My only concern with it, by itself, is that while Catherine/Katharine is always around, the nicknames go in and out. I've known full-name-Kates, and full-name-Cathy. Cathy/Kathy was the fashionable nickname when it was given to the one I've met, but it seems kinda mom-name-ish now, doesn't it? Kate/Katy/Katie is in right now but I wonder if a Kate would, in twenty or so years, regret not being able to go by some other form.
