Kit

I’m really liking the name [name_u]Kit[/name_u], but I don’t like any of the full names I’ve heard associated with it. So…

  1. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like [name_u]Kit[/name_u] better for a girl or a boy?
  2. What could [name_u]Kit[/name_u] be short for besides [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] and [name_m]Christopher[/name_m]?
  3. Could it pass as a stand alone name?
  1. Boy.
  2. [name_f]Christine[/name_f]? [name_m]Christian[/name_m]?
  3. Yes, but I prefer it as a nickname. The only one I knew was actually called [name_m]Christopher[/name_m].
  • I prefer [name_u]Kit[/name_u] for a boy, as [name_f]Kitty[/name_f] is the feminine.
  • I think it could work for any [name_u]Chris[/name_u] or [name_f]Katherine[/name_f]/[name_f]Kathleen[/name_f] type name.
  • It can stand alone, but prefer as a short form.
  • I like it on either actually! But I’m a fan of more masculine nicknames on girls.
  • Any [name_u]Chris[/name_u] names as above ([name_m]Christoph[/name_m] is cute), [name_m]Beckett[/name_m], of course [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] but also [name_u]Nikita[/name_u], [name_f]Katarina[/name_f], [name_f]Katriona[/name_f]
  • I think it could pass as a standalone name, especially if you have a longer surname. Short and spunky.
  1. I prefer [name_u]Kit[/name_u] for a boy
  2. I guess it could work for those names, although I wouldn’t guess the childs name if you called them [name_u]Kit[/name_u]
  3. I like [name_u]Kit[/name_u] as a stand alone name. It has the spunk and personality of a lot of the short 3 letter boy names. It would balance a long last name nicely :slight_smile:
  1. Either, I love it on both, but can never use it, sadly (family reasons).
  2. [name_f]Crisanta[/name_f], [name_m]Christian[/name_m], [name_f]Christina[/name_f], [name_f]Christine[/name_f], [name_f]Christiana[/name_f], [name_f]Catalina[/name_f], [name_f]Caitlin[/name_f], [name_f]Katrina[/name_f], [name_f]Calista[/name_f], [name_m]Calixto[/name_m], [name_f]Callisto[/name_f], [name_f]Calixta[/name_f], [name_m]Callister[/name_m], [name_f]Carmelita[/name_f], [name_f]Carita[/name_f], [name_m]Carito[/name_m], [name_m]Carlito[/name_m], [name_m]Castiel[/name_m], [name_f]Ekaterina[/name_f], [name_f]Catharina[/name_f], [name_f]Catheria[/name_f], [name_f]Katrin[/name_f], [name_f]Kristin[/name_f], [name_f]Kirsten[/name_f], [name_f]Charity[/name_f], [name_m]Cristobal[/name_m], [name_f]Christabel[/name_f], [name_m]Christiano[/name_m], [name_m]Christiansen[/name_m], [name_u]Christmas[/name_u], [name_m]Christos[/name_m], [name_u]Christy[/name_u], [name_m]Kitto[/name_m], [name_f]Katia[/name_f], [name_f]Claudita[/name_f], [name_f]Clarita[/name_f], [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Clementina[/name_f], [name_m]Clementius[/name_m], [name_m]Clifton[/name_m], [name_m]Clinton[/name_m], [name_f]Constantia[/name_f], [name_m]Constantino[/name_m], [name_m]Constantin[/name_m], [name_m]Corbit[/name_m], [name_f]Cortina[/name_f], [name_f]Cricket[/name_f], [name_u]Curtis[/name_u] / [name_m]Kurtis[/name_m], [name_f]Cynthia[/name_f].
  3. Absolutely! If [name_f]Kate[/name_f] can, [name_u]Kit[/name_u] should too.

This name is actually one of my favorites!
I love it on a boy.
And same as you the full names I’ve found for it don’t fit my taste. I’ve chosen to use it as a stand alone name. Or as a nn for Kayse/[name_u]Kasen[/name_u]/Keston.

I love [name_u]Kit[/name_u]! I am biased, because I know the cutest ever little girl named [name_u]Kit[/name_u], and I’ve fallen in love with the name.

I picture [name_u]Kit[/name_u] as a full name for girls, but a nickname for boys

I like [name_u]Kit[/name_u] for both genders & I think it’s fine as a standalone.
Really, [name_u]Kit[/name_u] could be a nn for anything if you look at it as a shortening of Kitten/[name_f]Kitty[/name_f] [name_f]Cat[/name_f]. It could also be a nn for any name that starts with a hard C/K sound, like [name_u]Carson[/name_u] or [name_u]Keeva[/name_u]

makes me think [name_u]Kit[/name_u] kittridge, the American girl doll, so girl, and [name_f]Catherine[/name_f]. and not alone.
