Cute nn for Kathleen?

We love the name [name]Kathleen[/name], but would like to avoid the nn [name]Kathy[/name]. Any suggestions?

A great friend of mine is named [name]Kathleen[/name], and she has always gone by Leenie (which even turns into Kathleenie for dramatic effect :smiley: ) I could never picture her as a [name]Kathy[/name]. But my favorite nickname option might be [name]Kat[/name] – that would work, too. I think [name]Kat[/name] is cute and spunky!


I think [name]Kitty[/name], [name]Kit[/name], and [name]Kat[/name] are all adorable.

I love [name]Kitty[/name] so much!!!

My name is [name]Kathleen[/name] and I actually really love it, it is traditional but I don’t run into too many others, at least in my age group. I cringe whenever anyone mistakes me for a [name]Kathy[/name], and really always go by my full name. Although a few people call me [name]Katie[/name], which I do find endearing - that is my favorite of the nns.

I love [name]Kit[/name], [name]Kitty[/name], and [name]Kate[/name]!
