    Need variations on Kathleen

    I would love to honour my wonderful grandmother Kathleen in a middle name slot. However I'm not loving the name Kathleen and she doesn't have a middle name. Are there any variations or alternatives that would honour my grandmother?

    Other inspiration could come from that she collects owl collectables
    And she was known as robin when she lead a brownie pack

    There are a ton of variations and nicknames for Kathleen:

    Catalina
    Catia (Portuguese, pronounced KAH-tee-uh)
    Kaija (Finnish, pronounced KYE-uh)
    Karina
    Kasia
    Kate
    Katherine
    Kay
    Kit
    Kitty
    Lena
    Trina

    As for "robin" and "owl", I didn't find much other than Robin. One site says that the name Opa means "owl" in Choctaw, but @dantea would probably know if that's accurate.

    Good luck!

    There's the obvious Katherine or Caitlin. The Irish Caitlín is actually a slightly different pronunciation koyt-LEEN, and is a bit more of an obvious connection, but would likely cause pronunciation problems outside of Ireland.

    Catalina/Katalina
    Katarina/Caterina
    Caitríona (kuh-TREE-nuh)
    Caitria
    Katia/Katija/Katya (etc)
    Kate
    Leena
    Caitrín
    Katherina/Catharina (etc)
