My DD's name is Katerina but we knew before she was born that we would call her Kaia. Here is why . . .
Katerina is DH's sister's name who passed away suddenly when she was 20. DH was very close to her and it meant a lot to him to name our DD after her. However she went by Kathy. I wanted Kaia to be her own person, not always associated with Kathy. So we decided a nickname before she was born because we knew his family would start calling her Kathy right away (some of them did anyway but are getting better)
Also I like the fact that as she gets older she can go by Katerina, Kat, Kate etc. if she chooses that Kaia isn't what she wants.
