    I'm Katherine nn Kate. I agree that Catherine seems slightly more classic than Katherine, but Cate is alternative whereas Kate is the little black dress version. I love my name, so I heartily approve of the name you're giving your daughter. There's no wrong choice here, but I ALWAYS go by Kate, so I honestly don't think it matters how you spell the longer version. I even use Kate on resumes now because it's a perfectly professional name.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    I prefer Katherine nn Kitty
    but out of the above options I don't know I mean Catherine nn Cate does seem softer to me but I've never thought to ever spelt Kate as Cate even knowing a Catherine who'se nn was Kate/Cate, I called her Cat so I never had to worry about the spelling
    I think I prefer Kate spelt with the K
    Number 1 Aunty to one adorable ray of sunshine Rosalee Jillian 'Rosie'/'Roe'
    Cousin & Godmother to the delightful Erica Marisol 'Eri'/'Ricki'
    & Godmother to Sadie Bryn 'Bean' & honorary aunt to Molly Maeve Tuesday 'Molly Dolly'!

    I like Cate as a nn for Catherine but prefer Katherine as a full name. I know a lot of Kates so prefer Kat, Kitty and Rina as nns for Katherine because they're less common.
