My name is Katherine and I often wished my parents used Kit as a nickname when I was younger in addition to or instead of Kate

The American Girl doll was my introduction to this name when I was young, and it's always stuck with me. Kit is short and spunky, and I wish I came across this name more.

Super sweet, cute and simple name. I think you could use it as a nn for Margret, it would work.

Kit on a girl is traditionally a nn for Katherine. On a boy, it's a nn for Christopher. My daughter chose Kit as her nn when her soccer coach couldn't get her name right...she's Kiersten, but he continually called her Kristen.
