    K/Catherine Conundrum

    I love Catherine spelled with at ***C***. I love Kate spelled with a ***K***. I hate Catherine that goes by Kate. Which do you prefer Catherine "Cate" or Katherine "Kate"?
    Hoping for a 2015 baby!

    Top Ten Little Ladies: Clara, Katherine, Catherine, Elizabeth, Elisabeth, Ann, Alice, Kate, Violet, Anna,
    Top Ten Little Lads: James, Patrick, Peter, Henry, Arthur, Benjamin, Grant, William, working on the rest

    If I named a baby tomorrow: James Kent or Clara Elizabeth

    As above, Catherine with a 'c'. There's a 'k' in my name but I've never been a fan of it, they're too sharp for my liking.

    I don't mind Catherine, I think it's rather pretty, but I despise Cate. (I don't mind Cat)

    For Kate, my favourite spelling is Katharine. It's rarer than Katherine though and falling out of favour.

    For some reason Catherine with a C feels more feminine to me. I agree with renrose, that k's feel to sharp.
    I think nn Cate is lovely.
