Comments for the name Kathryn

Comments for KATHRYN:

I've never seen anything corroborating this, but it is a Danish form of the name Katherine. My Danish great-grandmother was named Kathryn, and so is my mom and everyone in the family has always insisted that this is the Danish version of Katherine. In any case, I've always prefered the traditional Katherine spelling and am thankful that my mom didn't name me Leah Kathryn like she wanted too. My mom and I DO agree though, that the nicknames Kate and Katie are our least favorite names EVER - can't stand how cutesy/saccarin they sound, gives me a toothache just saying those names. Kathy, Kitty, Kit, Kat are nice nicknames though.
