The names is actually a Gaelic form of Michael... its not simply a spelling mistake.

Kathrine and Cathrine still look like possible spelling errors to me. Kathryn and Cathryn are established variations. Maybe it's unfair, but conventions and social norms exist.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Definitely looks like more of a spelling mistake than a variant. I heard of one person with this spelling, and apparently his name was indeed spelt this way in error. Parents should learn to spell a name, if they like it enough to want to give it to their child. Is that honestly too much to ask???

clairels Says:


I have met a Micheal. He worked as the facilities manager at my grad school. Ergo, it is a name.

lesliemarion Says:


It is a spelling error, period. My husband is named Michael and I have frequently typed his name this way in my haste (AND THEN CORRECTED IT!)

MaryKathryn Says:


Totally agree, seeing as how my name is spelled Kathryn. If someone said this about my name I would be thoroughly upset.

KateMP91 Says:


This spelling has been used often enough, over a long amount of time, to be a name. Is Kathryn not a name because it is spelled differently than Catherine?

lesliemarion Says:


A typo, not a name!
