Kitty is a really cute nn. But I just admit, Cato is really lovely. I love girl's names that end in 'o'.

My favourite Catherine variant - a lovely, elegant Dutch name pronounced "kat-ah-REEN-ah". The standard Dutch nickname is the cool Cato ("KAT-oh"), which is actually more popular as a given name than its longer form in the Netherlands.
