I am just Kate and I really wish I had a longer name. I use to tell my husband about the exchange that I have with people over my name and he didn't believe it, but now that we've been married for a while, he's watched it happen over and over and laughs every time it starts up. The exchange goes like this...
Friend/Stranger: What's your REAL name?
Friend/Stranger: No, like the name on your birth certificate.
Friend/Stranger: No, like your proper name is it Katherine or Caitlin or Katrina... like your long name?
Me: Yeah, I understand, but it's just Kate.
The reason this is so funny is that people ALWAYS suggest names that my name may be as though I don't understand what they are asking... as if I don't know my own name.

Kate can definitely stand on its own! I've known a fair number of Kates and they've actually all been just Kate. The Catherines/Katherines I've known have gone by a mix of their full name and Cat/Kat or Katie, but never Kate.
From the rest of your list, I think Hannah, Emily and Grace go best with Benjamin. Margot is lovely too but feels more old-fashioned and doesn't match as well stylistically.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3
