LOVE it. It's my daughter's middle name and would have been her first (with the nn Kate) if my sister's name wasn't Caitlin (nn Catie). I named my daughter after Catherine the Great, but we changed the spelling because we prefer the K.

It's nms, but I think that's just because I've known a lot of Katherine's in my life, so it seems a bit boring. Plus, I'm not a fan of "Kathy" or "Katie", but I do like "Kate" by itself quite a bit.

Sounds great to me. What nickname would you go for?
Kat, Kathy, Katie, Kate?

I like it but I have known many Katherines along the way - and many of them HATE being called some of the nicknames. I know one who hates Katie, one who hates Kathy, and one who hates all shortened versions of her name.

I like Kate as a name on its own more than Katherine but I guess it gives you more formal options...
