I have noticed that Katy with a 'y' is not as poular as Katy with an'ie'. Personally I am glad my name is with a 'y' rather than an 'ie'. There is also a trail in Missouri called "Katy Trail".

My little sister's name is Katie (ie). I prefer it with a y though.

Katy Carr is the main character in the books 'What Katy Did', 'What Katy Did at School', and 'What Katy Did Next'. They are my all time favourite books!
(besides Harry Potter, of course!)

Katy is better than Katie, although I still prefer Kate.

My name is Katy (with a Y) and I still come across people who have never seen it spelled that way. I like it better though, since it is much less common. I would also like to say that it is not just the pet form of Kate, but also of Katherine, Katharine, Kathryn, various other spellings of the same name, along with Kathleen. I have never gone by Kate in my life.

I absolutely hate the name Katy. It's so much prettier as Katie.

This is my best friend's name, short for Kathryn. Almost everyone spells it Katie though, or the teachers will call her Kathryn. It drives her nuts. Katy is unique, just the spelling of her name.

This is weird, because from what I have seen, Katy is much more commonly used than Katie.

I adore this spelling of Katie, but Katy is nice as well.

I like the spelling of this name better than Katie, but not quite as much as Katey, but it's in close 2nd.

There are several children's books (in addition to the ones mentioned above) in which the main character is named Katy: "Katy No-Pocket," "Katy and the Big Snow," and the book series "Katy Duck."

Singer Katy Perry.

This is my name, short for Katlyn, and I love it! However, it appears to be almost physically impossible to spell it correctly. Even my own grandpa can't!

Katy McLaughlin is the name of Alison Lohman's character in the hit movie "Flicka". In the beginning of the movie, Katy is called "Kathryn" twice, meaning that this is her real name but Katy is the name she chooses to go by.

I prefer Katie. But I really love this name.

Cute name, love Katy Perry, but I prefer Kate.

My name is Katy (with a Y). It is so funny cause none of my teachers ever spell my name right! My real name is Katelyn (also spelled a different way than normal). But everyone calls me Katy(:
-- katykk26  2/7/2012
I'm a Katy (not short for anything, just Katy itself) and I absolutely adore my name. I'm very pleased though that Katy Perry has recently popularised this spelling, as I always had it spelled Katie as a child :/ I much prefer the Katy spelling as it looks classic and traditional to me, whereas Katie just makes me think '80s/90s child'. Just my own thoughts :)
