The hard "c" really has no etymological value.

It is a worthless letter when you have "k".

Wolfgang Says:


The hard "c" is a worthless letter with no real value though.

All "k" names are better.

Wolfgang Says:


Many famous German figures in history bore this name.

As well as many kings.

Popular in many nations.

I'm not a huge fan of the K names, but I gotta admit Konrad is an exception. I like Conrad too, but Konrad, unlike some other K names, actually looks pretty authentic, not trendy.

Guest Says:


I have a K instead of C name too. I like authentic K names only like this. If it's Kruz or Kamden or what have you then I get cringy

I'm glad there's someone else out there who likes names spelled with K instead of C. I was starting to think I was the only one.

SweetPraline Says:


I am partial to names spelled with K's instead of C's [my own name being Rebekkah] and I really have a liking for this name in particular. It's strong and manly, but with the K cute and trendy enough for a little boy. Adding to my own list!

This is my son's name! Guys like it because it is strong. Girls like it because it's unique and they don't know anyone by this name. My grandma's like it because it was popular in their generation!
