[name]Hi[/name] there! I do think that [name]Kate[/name] can stand on its own, much like [name]Eliza[/name].

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Ann[/name]: I’d stay away from pairing the short [name]Kate[/name] with another short name, because it sounds pretty blunt. What about [name]Kate[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name]?

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]: I think this is pretty…

Without knowing your last name, here are some more ideas:

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name]/[name]Annabel[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Louise[/name]/[name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Marielle[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Mirabelle[/name]/[name]Mirabel[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

yes! If you like [name]Kate[/name] on its own, then I think you should name your daughter [name]Kate[/name]. :slight_smile:

I know someone who just named their baby [name]Kate[/name] [name]Adele[/name]. I think it’s cute!

Yes, [name]Kate[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] is lovely!

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] is really sweet (I agree that a longer middle is probably best). I also love [name]Anna[/name] [name]Jane[/name]!

We named our daughter [name]Kate[/name] [name]Makenna[/name]. We have only received rave reviews about naming her just [name]Kate[/name]

[name]How[/name] odd…Where did the original poster’s post go? Hmm…

OP here…
Yes, where did it go? I haven’t been on this site for very long, not sure why that would happen?

That’s so nice, so far we too have only gotten rave reviews on naming our soon to be born daughter “just” [name]Kate[/name]. :slight_smile:

Now that we’ve decided on [name]Kate[/name], can anyone help with some more mn suggestions?
I like some of [name]Jill[/name]'s suggestions above, like [name]Annabel[/name] and [name]Marielle[/name], but they come close to rhyming with our last name, I also like [name]Amelia[/name] a lot, but my husband doesn’t. :frowning:

love the name [name]Kate[/name]

kate stella
kate molly

Hmm…the elle names don’t work for you (Would -ella ending names be any better?), so without knowing your last name, here are some more ideas:

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name] (instead of [name]Annabelle[/name])
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Adelaide[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Briony[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Cecilia[/name] (instead of [name]Amelia[/name])
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name] (ditto)
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Diana[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Georgiana[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Isadora[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Juliana[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Miranda[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Mariana[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Romilly[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] ([name]Sophia[/name]'s very popular, though)

Take care! :slight_smile:

Thank you, some great ideas to go over with dh!!

All “elle” and “ella” names are out. :slight_smile:

[name]Kate[/name] [name]Adeline[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Amandine[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Avalon[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Meredith[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Leonora[/name]
[name]Kate[/name] [name]Susanna[/name]

I’m still considering many of the previous suggestions, but I have one more question…

I already determined that [name]Kate[/name] [name]Ann[/name] isn’t the greatest choice because they’re both one syllable names. BUT what if the name had a lot of meaning and sentimentality to it? [name]Ann[/name] is my mn and was dh’s deceased mom’s mn. This is our last dc and the last chance to honor her (her first name won’t work for us). What do you think, is flow more important than meaning?

Personally, I think meaning is more important than flow. But I think it’s totally possible to have both. There are so many variations on [name]Ann[/name]: [name]Annabelle[/name], Annaleise, [name]Annalee[/name], Annarose, [name]Rosann[/name], etc. You should do a search on names that start with “an”, I’m sure something will appeal to you. But if you’d rather just use [name]Ann[/name], I say go for it. [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Ann[/name] is very nice though (it’s my mom’s name), but I know you prefer [name]Kate[/name]. Also, have you thought about using two middles? [name]Kate[/name] [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Ann[/name] springs to mind.
