Nay. I was considering Kitty at one point, but then my husband brought up the creepy man factor.
"I bet I can make you purr" being the cleanest of all the potential lines he listed. I wouldn't subject a daughter to that.

Kitty does have a vintage feel and makes me think of the characters in Pride and Prejudice and Anna Karenina (neither of whose full name was Kitty); however, I'd only do Kitty as a nickname, as it doesn't sound professional on an adult.
On the other hand, I do know someone whose actual name is Kitty. She is from Hong Kong and has a Chinese name, but her parents let her choose her own English name as a child, and that's the name she goes by. It doesn't seem to have hampered her career as she has a PhD.Miriam ~ Tabitha ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Veronica ~ Sarah ~ EstherPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

Kitty is becoming quite popular in England & Wales along with other vintage stand-alone nicknames names like Evie and Lottie. I have met 3 under 5 in the last few months. I think it is charming but i can understand the arguement for using as a nickname for a longer base name. I know a Caitlin nn Kitty (in her twenties) which is lovely. Personally, i would use it for any vintage name beginning with C or K eg Clementine.
I've always thought that sisters called Catherine and Susannah nicknamed Kitty and Sukie would be adorable.~ Mama to Juniper and Arlo ~
