The only obvious use of "Kit" as a nickname in Elizabethan times was for "Christopher", most notably Christopher Marlowe (who may or may not have written some portion of Shakespeare's works, but in any case was a much more interesting character). Kit continued as a male nickname up into the 19th century (Christopher "Kit" Carson - explorer, Indian fighter, and native of our little hometown - being the primary example).
