There was a T.V. show called "WildKat" and it starred a girl who's nickname was Kat, in the show it was short for Katrina.

I really dislike this name. Sounds like an old lady.

The main female character in Casper. It stood for Kathleen. Played brilliantly(as usual) by Christina Ricci.

My name is Katrina, and I prefer Kat (only spelt Katt). I also know a girl named Kathleen who is nicknamed Kat.

Kat means "cat" in Dutch.

Makes ME think not necessarily of an old woman, but of the much younger Kat Slater (or Kat Moon) in the soap 'EastEnders'. In this case the name is short for Kathleen.

I'm known as Kat in certain circles of friends (I'm a Katrina), some of my friends probably don't even know what my full name is. Much prefer that over Trina. One of the lead characters in 10 Things I Hate About You was Kat but I'm not sure what it was short for.

My Mom's name is Kat (real name Kathleen). My aunt has been calling her that since she was about 11 years old. Back then, no one had heard of the name Kat. So I like how my Mom got the nickname before it became popular.

It's also short for Kathleen.

Kat is an awesome name! I love it! It is so original. I think it would be a cute nickname for Kathlyn.

I don't like this name. It sounds too, like, ugly? or something. I don't know. Nevermind, not ugly. It sounds mean, or something. Just something about it does not sound like a good person. Sorry.

Adorable nickname. And in 10 things I hate about you her name is Katarina.

In many Slavonic languages "Kat" means "hangman" or "executioner". In English speaking countries, this is probably not much of an issue, but I still see it as somewhat trashy and immature like all the names even vaguely reminding me of "cat". A great choice, indeed.

A friend of mine from Europe pronounces it kOt. I don't know where he is from though.

I love this name! Personally I would name my child Kataryn and call her Kat. To me this name has a very modern vibe. Almost like an Emo kid.
-- ChocolatePointeshoes  9/23/2011
Kit-KAT, by naming your child this you're just forcing them to be fat.

I love this name and makes me think of the name Kitty
Cat(Valentine) is also a character on Victorious
Cute name.
-- jazzycritique  5/18/2013
One of the cutest names ever. Somehow it doesn't make me think of the animal, especially when spelled this way.

Katherine "Kat" Hillard was the Pink Ranger in the later part of the third season of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, all of Power Rangers Zeo, and the first half of Power Rangers Turbo. She eventually became Tommy's love interest.

My name is Kat, short for Katerina. The only reason I don't care for it is because people make dumb comments about the animal "cat".

Hate this name. I feel like girls that use it are always trying way too hard to be cool and unique by using it rather than their full name. In the past 20 years, I think the two movies that have influenced girls to pick up this name are "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Casper". Both movies feature female characters named "Kat" that are kind of "cool girl", tomboy, misfit types.

Girls that I usually see use it seem to want to come off that way as well. It's derived from a feminine name so it's girly and makes you think of cats but then it's been shortened and all of the formality of the name has been taken out so it sounds masculine as well. In any case, I think of posers when I think of this name.
