I think Kitty is adorable as a nickname...but I prefer it as nickname not as a full name. I think giving your kid a full name like Katherine/Katelynn/Katerina etc is better because it gives them more options. Not just to have something "more professional" for when they start a career..but what if your kid just hates having a really cutesy name. I mean, there's nothing to fall back on.

Remember that when she was born women mostly worked at home and were taught to be much more docile than today. A full-name like Kitty might not have thrown up as many road-blocks as it could today. And while we theoretically men and women are equal many professions still are male dominated and difficult for a women to break into. Kitty as a name is very sweet and sugary and your daughter might decide she needs something with more umph. How would you feel if she shortened it to Kit? or would you prefer a Katherine, etc?MAJOR CONSTRUCTION ZONE

I agree that in the past Kitty as a given name would've been less problematic since many/most women didn't go to college or get jobs.
If you can stand Katherine, i think it's a great name and Kitty is a sweet, vintage nickname for it.
I also like Kit as a standalone name on girls, and i know a little spitfire of a girl named Kit who fits it perfectly (her family sometimes calls her Kitten, but mostly just Kit)I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
