Thoughts on this name?

Feb 10th, 2017, 18:57 PM   #1
.. Kitty?

My OH absolutely hates it and says she will be teased but I love it. It's pretty and considering there are some ridiculous names out there right now she won't get it that bad!

It's only early days , we don't even know what we are having but it took us forever to decide on our eldests name

I think it's cute but wouldn't name my child it. I would think along the same lines as your OH I am afraid. I think it's nice for a little one but not necessarily for an adult and I always try to think of names through all stages. That's just my opinion though and it's what you love. Your OH might come round to the idea xx

I'm not a fan personally but if you love it could you and hubby compromise? If you're having a girl call her something that you could shorten to Kitty as like a pet name for her? Katherine for example? Or use kitty as a middle name?

I love it, but I'm a Catherine myself so I'm biased. It's also my great grandmothers name too it screams old fashioned, 1950s etc. Like Betty or Besty or Dotty

It's a lovely name but you need something you both love. Happy name hunting x

It's nice but as others have said when she's older I can't imagine people being 'nice' about it, people are cruel. Xx

I think it's a cute name but I think she might get teased for it with people saying "Here Kitty Kitty Kitty" like calling a cat or call her Kitty Karryall like Cindy's doll on The Brady Bunch, and things like that. Kids and adults can be cruel. Also think about if she wants to be a professional and wants to be taken seriously as someone's boss and she has the name Kitty. I like to think of all stages of life too when picking out a name. But like someone else said, I think it will be a nice nick name that only family calls her. My sister did that, she loved the name Toy and wanted to name her daughter that, but her husband hated it because of how she can be teased. And he was right because nowadays that sounds like a stripper name or something. Can you imagine that name on a Resume? But my sister is naive and thought it was just a cute name. So she compromised and named her Denise Latoy and only our family calls her Toy. That's a compromise.

Thanks all.. I do still like it but there are so many awful names around which are just asking for teasing. A friend of mine called her daughter Nelly imo that's worse than kitty for name calling etc Smelly Nelly Nelly the elephant! I do know a couple of Kittys one is a teen another is in her 30s and they both suit it. But back to the drawing board

I like it - wouldn't choose it myself, but like someone already said it's inkeeping with the retro names. Makes me think of kitty Bennett from pride and prejudice - that was short for Catherine. If your partner can't get on board maybe using a longer version is a compromise. My friend gave her son the full version of a name and then let him choose what he wanted to be called and it worked really well.

The name Kitty reminds me of that awful girl on X-Factor a few years ago, the blonde one?

Saying that it's a cool retro name and if you like it you should go for it.. but you really have to think about how your girl will feel when she's older? xx
