Kate for Catherine?

We’ve decided on [name]Anna[/name] [name]Kate[/name] as a double name for a girl name, but I’d like to use [name]Anna[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] as a full name. Her name is [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Ann[/name] so I think it would be a nice way to honor her. The only problem is that I don’t love the spelling [name]Cate[/name] and I don’t want to change the spelling of my grandmother’s name.

Can I use [name]Kate[/name] with K as a nickname for [name]Catherine[/name] with a C?

of course! i think that is a beautiful name!

I have a sister whose nickname is [name]Kate[/name] for [name]Catherine[/name] ([name]Katie[/name] when she was younger). She kind of wishes my parents had spelled it [name]Cate[/name] because it’s a bit cooler than [name]Kate[/name], but, the short answer is yes, it works. Of course, people will assume it’s [name]Katherine[/name], not [name]Catherine[/name].

my cousin is [name]Katie[/name] for [name]Catherine[/name] and has never had an issue. [name]Anna[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] “[name]Anna[/name] [name]Kate[/name]” is adorable!

[name]Shame[/name]…I love the spelling [name]CATE[/name], like [name]Cate[/name] Blanchett…so different and classy! When I see [name]Kate[/name] I think [name]Kathy[/name]…
