Lovely name. However, the spelling of Kate will always be far better.
Cate (with this spelling) looks terrible.

I really like this name! It's a more unique version of Kate, and it is a great nickname for Caterina or Catherine.

I love the name Cate. It is my proper name and I read all the comments and I saw who hated my first name.

If your name begins with a "C" as mine does (Catherine), then it only makes sense to use Cate for short. Why would you use Kate with a "K" if your name begins with a "C"? Anyway, they sound the same and Cate is a little more unique. I like Cate Blanchette's name with a "C". Kate with a "K" is just so common and overused... unless your name begins with a "K". I love my name and have had compliments all my life - mostly from men, so it has served me well. :)

Kate is very lovely, but Cate is just downright strange.

It's fairly common in the UK for Catherines who go by Kate to spell it with a K. For example, Kate Middleton's (girlfriend of Prince William) full name is Catherine Elizabeth. Personally, I think Cate looks strange. Kate all the way!

I agree 1000 percent with the comment above. I love the name Caterina and the Nickname Cate and this other name Cathrina (pronounced Cath-REE-na, search it up it's a name I submitted). And Cate is ADORABLE with a C. I know a Kate and she is a bratty annoying little girl but Cate is beautiful and cute (Cate, Cate, CATE!)

My pet peeve: when Catherines spell it "Kate" and not "Cate". If your name is Katherine, Kathryn, Kathleen, etc., go on and spell it Kate with a K - however! If your name is Catherine, do please be logical and spell it Cate! Famous examples of this: Kate Bosworth, birth name Catherine. Kate Bush, birth name Catherine. There is no K in their original name - so where did it come from? People use Cathy as well as Kathy, and Cat as well as Kat, so why do people find Cate so far-fetched and absurd?

I love this form with a "C" then a "K" because it's more unique and looks better. My name is Caytie but I go by Cate sometimes and I love it!

I love this name! I want to have a daughter and name her Caterina, but call her Cate. This spelling is so pretty!

To me it seems more sophisticated than Kate--just as I think Catherine is more elegant than Katherine, but they're both lovely names.

Cate is cute, Kate seems more like a woman of action.

I love this name! I've been in love with it all my life and don't know why they say that it's too common, I've never met a Cate in my life, nor a Kate, nor Katie, I've met a Katherine and a Kathy. I do not really have to worry about its popularity because by the time I have kids it won't be that popular. haha.

My name is Caitlin but I use the name Cate instead. I have received a lot of compliments on my name, mostly because it's a more unique form of Kate. I also love my name because almost nobody in my school has this name execpt for me, so everybody knows who I am! All in all, I think Cate is a really great name!
