This is a boy and girl name! Why don't they have a meaning to it?

Kit is a very cute name but I like it more for a girl! It’s very soft and feminine! Reminds me of kittens. I can vaguely picture Kit on a boy, but I still like it better for a girl.

Kit is a really cute name for Katherine. I can't imagine a boy being called Kit.

I love it as a nickname for a boy, but I can't find a good legal name for it. I'm not into the name "Christopher".

Great name, it's a great nickname for either gender. Kit for a boy sounds handsome and outgoing, and Kit for a girl sounds friendly and smart.

I like it, but "Kit" also means "cat" in Ukrainian, so I don't know if that's good or bad...

My name is Kit and I love my name! I'm female, but I believe that the name can be used for anyone, regardless of gender.

Kit works as a male name though I think most people think of a female when they hear it. I've known a couple of Kit's and they've both been fun loving, if a bit sophisticated people. I have a very close male friend named Kit, I would call him childlike and sweet, yet still in a masculine way.

Not really a good nickname for boys. Even though Chris is way too common, it sounds better than Kit. I'd still much prefer Topher for any boy named Christopher.

This is a girl's name in my book. It's a nice, sweet, short, spunky name but I don't have the courage to ever use it. Kit: Kit-kat. Kitty. Kitten. Kitchen.

Love for both females and males, but only as a nickname for something else.

In "Kit's Wilderness" (by David Almond) the protagonist is Christopher "Kit" Watson.

Kit is a nickname for Kathrine or Christopher. It was also popular in the late 1800's and again in the 1940's as a name in it's own right. (The popularity of western themed radio and television programs led to this)
My son's name is Kit. A few people dislike it but mostly I get wonderful feedback. It is an old fashioned yet oft unused name. Too me, it evokes a feeling of youth and adventure.

Kit is a word used to describe baby beavers. I love beavers, so I wouldn't recommend this as a legal name. It's more of a nickname.

My name is Kit! Actually, it's short for Katrina. But I think it's an awesome name and I would never change it. I like it for a guy, too.

This always makes me think of the "Dragonlance Chronicles" character, Kitiara, who was often refered to as Kit. Kitiara Uth Matar was interesting character, but she was the character you loved to hate because of her betrayal to her friends.

I love the name Kit and I have no idea why. It's just so cool. I think it's an abbreviation of Christopher?

Forget Kathy or Kate. Kit is my favorite nickname for Katherine! Oddly I like it for a boy too. I once knew an adorable male Kit.
