I am curious as to what everyone’s favourite spelling of [name]Katherine[/name] is? It has been one of my favourite names for a long time, and although I’d shy away from using as it an fn (due to popularity) I would definitely use it as a mn.
Which do you prefer?
I, for some reason, prefer the double-a spelling (both C and K) but can’t figure out why. I worry that if it was in the fn spot, she’d be constantly spelling it out to people to avoid them spelling it with an ‘e’, or worse, spelling it [name]Kathryn[/name]. I really, really dislike the ‘ryn’ ending. I always pronounce [name]Katharine[/name]/[name]Catharine[/name] as ‘Kath-a-rine’ rather than ‘Kath-rin’ which is possibly why I find it more appealing.
So, ladies, what do you think?
