My name is Catherine but my family & friends call me Cat. Professionally, I just go by Catherine. Also, it's a classic name; classics are the best :)
Catherine is my mom’s name; she goes by Cathy. I like this name with a “c” rather than a “k”. Then again, I’m probably just biased.
I love classics and Catherine is a long, beautiful classic. It also means pure.
I think the name Catherine is a splendid name and resonates with me due, in no small part, to its long history. I think it is definitely worth having this moniker as a first name that is quite splendid and classic.

Honestly I adore this name! Idk, there’s just something about it, it’s so classy and feminine and beautiful. I don’t think though it’s really common (I think it depends on the country) but I think it’s a name worth choosing. I prefer “Catherine” more than “Katherine” and about the nicknames… so I really like Catie or Cat (I think they’re less common than Kate and Katie) and I’m also really into the nickname Cassie. It’s for 2 names Catherine and Cassandra which are both beautiful and I feel like Cassie for the name Catherine is very rare but it’s very cute so you can use that :3 Overall I love the name, I think it’s gorgeous.
Classic and beautiful! It also has a soft, pleasant sound.
Catherine Eugenia Biden "Jean" was the mother of US president Joe Biden.
Lovely. A little bit better than Katherine but I think both names are nice.
Boring name. I prefer Katherine.
A bit plain, but I like the nickname Cathy!
Absolutely great name! Such a classic, has a lot of history, just a good, quality name! Catherine is a wonderful name for every age!
Wonderful! I love it!
Almost all of my teachers are called this but they all have different variants.
Wouldn't like to be Cath.
Elegant and pure name!
I love this name! It's my sweet daughter's name, so I may be just a bit biased :) We mostly call her Cate or Catie. I chose Catherine for its beauty and traditionalism, as well as the fact that it is now rather uncommon, but still recognizable. There are maybe two or three others in her medium sized school.
Catherine is so regal, refined, and classically beautiful. I like this spelling more than Katherine, although Katherine is nice.
H.I.H Grand Duchess Catherine Pavlovna of Russia, Queen of Württemburg, Duchess of Oldenburg (1788-1819) was the daughter of Emperor Paul I and his wife, Empress Maria Feodorovna.
My name is Catherine, but my friends usually call me Cat or Kate.
Catherine Gillies was a member of the Manson Family. She was also called Cappy.
A beautiful classic.
My name is Catherine, I used to hate it because it didn't feel like a young person's name when I was a teenager (I'm 27 now). I now really like it because it feels traditional. My family have always called me Cat, but at work it's Catherine - feels more professional.
Catherine is my big sis' name! Extrovert, lovely, outgoing and a bit clumsy but smart and easily adapted with new environment or changes.
I named my eldest daughter Catherine Felicity. I think it's a beautiful name and suits her perfectly. She is currently 4, with beautiful blonde hair and greenish blue eyes. She also has a sister called Ethelind Indie. I use 'Cathy' or 'Cat' as her nickname and I think it matches with her sister's nickname 'Eth'.
I love this alternative spelling!
Cathy Freeman. Australian aboriginal Olympic runner won a few gold medals for Australia in the 2000 Olympics.
4 of Henry the 8ths wives were called Catherine. Look what happened to them. Strange no one has mentioned Kate Middleton, the future queen of England. She was born Catherine Middleton and very modern.
Old fashioned now, looking at the stats. I would say try Caitlin or Katya as an alternative. It is originally Greek; from Katarina... means pure one. Most of the women I know with this name have a heightened view of themselves bordering on extreme. There was only one Catherine the Great. Try telling a modern Catherine that.
I really love the name Catherine, but I am currently expecting, and will be naming my daughter 'Kitcherine,' as it is the Irish word for kitchen, and that's where my soul belongs :) my other children are called Kayleigh Mckayleigh, Meghanneghe and Apple.
Catherine is my mom's name. She has done a lot to help me through the years. I want to name my daughter after her. For nicknames I'd go with Catie because my mom goes by Cathy. It's also such a pretty name too, and has some history to it. Middle names I'd go with Violet because that's pretty for a middle name. My mom's middle name is Leigh. I like that too but I know how it feels not to have your own name because I'm the 4th generation of my name. I'm sure she'd want her name as her own if she's anything like me.
I have a mixed opinion on this name. I do think it's a gorgeous name with a lot of history and it rolls off the tongue. However, I really don't like "CATHY" as a nickname, it's a bit grannyish in my opinion. Also, personally I think of the character "Catherine" from the video game by the same name and she is a succubus lol and it doesn't help that there was a girl I knew in school with this name who kind of "got around".
Nice name that carries both charm and dignity, sounds so much better than the nickname Cathy. Went to school with at least ten Cathys.
Does anyone notice that Catherines with this spelling usually have the nickname 'Caity' instead of 'Cate'? It could just be where I live and I'm talking nonsense but that's my experience. I love this name, who doesn't - it's smart and pretty, but that's just something I find a little down-putting because I prefer Cate to Caity a lot more.' I've never heard of a Catherine abbreviating to Cate, however that's the usual nickname for Katherine with a K.
I think the name Catherine is very pretty. I personally prefer it not being shortened to Cathy. Having grown up in the 1970's my classes were always full of girls named Cathy. It was such a common name. Catherine is a sophisticated classic name.
A fine combination would be Catherine Rose, because of the flower specimen Catharanthus roseus.
In 2018, 54 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Catherine who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 106th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
Such a charming and feminine name.
This is also the Japanese name for a recurring character in the Mario Franchise: Birdo.
Catherine is a really lovely name. I have a friend with this name. I used to prefer Katherine but now I like Catherine more.
My name is Catherine and I love it so much. My friends call me Cat/Cathy. I have a sister whose name is Irene.
Catherine may be derived from the Ancient Egyptian words Ka and Hathor. Ka is Egyptian for soul, Hathor is the name of the Egyptian goddess of love. En or n would be used in Ancient Egypt for of. So Ka-Hathor-En would translate to Soul of Hathor (goddess of love).
When I hear the name, the first person I think of is Catherine Morland (Jane Austen's protagonist from Northanger Abbey, which is one of my favourite classic novels).
Catherine Hickland is an American film, stage, and television actress; singer, author and cosmetics-company CEO.

As a child, she played roles in the West End productions of the musicals Annie and Bugsy Malone.

Her screen debut came in the unsuccessful French-Italian film 1001 Nights, and she went on to find greater success as a regular in the British television series The Darling Buds of May. Dismayed at being typecast as the token pretty girl in British films, Zeta-Jones relocated to Los Angeles.Zeta-Jones is the recipient of several accolades, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award and a Tony Award, and in 2010 she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for her film and humanitarian endeavours.

My name is Catherine, but my nickname is Cate. People call me Cate, and I introduce myself as Cate. I appreciate that I have a more fun, younger sounding nickname but when I need proper sophistication, like in a job interview, I can be introduced as Catherine. That way I can be taken seriously. I have no personal opinion on this name but Catherine is a very timeless and classic name.
Catherine is classic and beautiful, and this is probably still my favourite spelling of the name. I love that Catherine has so many wonderful nickname options. The "Wuthering Heights" association is also a positive one for me.
Catherine Allégret is a French actress. She is the daughter of Simone Signoret and Yves Allégret. In 2004, she published a book titled World Upside Down in which she contended that she had been sexually abused by her stepfather Yves Montand since the age of 5.
Catherine was not a name known in the British islands until it was introduced by the French speaking Normans in 1066, before that names were Celtic in origin. This name was originally Greek and spelt with a "K". Katherine of Alexandria was a popular saint and her devotees spread the use of the name throughout mainland Europe. The French wrote it with a "C" because "K" was very rare at that time in the French language (due to being very rare in Latin) and even rarer in Old English (a Germanic language). So when it came to the British isles it was always spelt with a "C".In the USA however the root name was introduced via many cultures, many still using "K"as the fist letter. This explains why "C" is used in France and Great Britain and Ireland and is considered the "traditional" spelling, while Americans do not use the C spelling quite as much.
Catherine McNeil is an Australian fashion model. At fourteen years old, she won a model search contest hosted by Girlfriend. Vogue Paris declared her as one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.
Catherine Ann "Kate" Bosworth is an American actress and model. She made her film debut in The Horse Whisperer and appeared in Remember the Titans, before landing a lead role as a teenage surfer in the box-office hit Blue Crush. She also had roles in independent films, playing Dawn Schiller in the true crime film Wonderland, and as Sandra Dee in the Bobby Darin biographical drama Beyond the Sea. She also portrayed Lois Lane in Superman Returns, and has had roles in Straw Dogs and Still Alice.
Catherine is a bit nicer than Katherine because it just sounds more delicate. It also comes with nice nicknames like Cat, Cathy, Cate, Kate, Catie, and Katie but my favourite spelling of Catherine is Kathryn. But it is overused so why not add a more creative twist like Cathryn, Catheryn, Caterina, Kathryn, Katheryn, Katerina, Katarina or Catarina? Because face it, Katherine and Catherine are a bit too overused. I mean Valerie is pretty common but I've only met one in my life.
Catherine really is classically beautiful. It's one of those names that people take seriously, and won't lead to any teasing. The main drawback - besides potentially meeting a bunch of other Catherines of all age groups and feeling like a number in the process - is that there are so many historically established variants of the name (Katherine, Kathryn, Katharine...) that it will likely be misspelled a *lot*.
Also spelled:
Such a beautiful name! One of the most elegant of all girl names. I like the spelling with a C way better than with a K. If it were my name I would not want to be called by a nickname, I would prefer to be only called Catherine.
In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful names for a girl. It is so elegant, historic, beautiful, and nice sounding. I prefer this spelling, with a C. "Katherine" looks too modern and I think the "K" takes away it's elegance. Catherine is definitely one of my favourite names.
I am a Catherine. I personally hated my name growing up because I thought it never suited a girl like me. It sounded like an old white lady name to me (lol but not funny), and since I'm African I thought it didn't suit me at all. But I'm trying to learn to like my name though it's hard a bit. I think it will happen one day. My all time nickname is Kate. Sometimes I'm called Kat/Cat, or others. I can be uncomfortable being called any of my names depending on who the person is. I allow specifics and if you call me by one of my other names it feels weird and uncomfortable to me. I'm just weird like that hehe^^
Catherine is a beautiful, classic name. :)
Kate Higgins's given name is Catherine Davis Higgins.
This name reminds me of stale cheese sandwiches left overnight in a drawer.

Great name for anyone. Strong and simple, without being too boring or harsh.
I really like this name! However, the one thing that would stop me ever using it is that there are SO MANY. There are 7 in my school year alone! I like the nickname Cat best, but Kitty and Cathy are cute. Also like Rinnie!
Catherine is a great female. Throughout school there was always another girl with the same sounding name but different spelling. I like this spelling better than a K or Y. Some spell it without the silent E.
Katy Perry (Pop singer) is named Katheryn Hudson. Because Kate Hudson had that name, she changed it to Katy Perry.
My name is Catherine. I used to hate my name, but I've grown into it and now I love it. I've always gone by Catherine, never any nicknames except to very close family members who sometimes call me Cat. I only know a few Catherines or Katherines where I live, so it doesn't seem that common to me. Although I like the nicknames Cate and Cathy (after reading Wuthering Heights :)) I think I'll always go by Catherine. :)
Catherine of Siena is a famous italian saint. She had a very strong character and it was due to her efforts that the pope living in Avignon moved back to his rightful place in Rome. She was extremely gifted with persuasion, kindness, and strength of mind.
This is my name and I love it! I feel like it fits me and I have never regretted that my parents gave me it. For the longest time, I refused to go by a nickname. Now I have given in to my boyfriend who calls me Cathy. I like it. The name gets a lot of compliments.
My name is Catherine, and I was named for Catherine of Aragon. I don't understand how Catherine is such a popular name. I hardly know anyone named Catherine! And I've actually never met someone with the same spelling. Everyone here pronounces it, Cath-er-in and really makes sure to say 3 syllables. A friend of mine has actually started calling me Caty.
My name is Catherine. I do find it refined. However, I feel that it might be too common especially were I'm from (french speaking country).
I prefer Katherine, because then you can go by Kate or Katie. Plus, it just looks prettier to me.
My middle name is Catherine. I like this name and I like it with a C not a K. My initials are CCC which I think is cool, but I also think the spelling with a C just looks nicer.
Catherine Popper is an American musician.

Catherine of England was one of the daughters of King Charles I of England and his wife Henriette Marie of France.
My name is Catherine and I am proud of it. From my experience, people take you seriously when you have this name. I have been complimented on my name, and how classic it is. The name Catherine will never go out of style. It carries a pedigree and a history, has a strong yet feminine sound and spelling. Do your child a favor and give her a name that people will respect. To me, the spelling with the C is softer and more feminine, and also more traditional than the more trendy "K" spelling. Also, it is less likely to get shortened to Kate or Katie.
Catherine Maggie is the daughter of American actor Neal McDonough and his wife Ruve.
Catherine Bell is an American actress.
Can be shortend up to Cat.
Catherine is simple and basic, but the K versions and other various spellings have more fantasy and adventure in them.
I'm really surprised that so many people like the name Catherine. I personally like it (but I would never hear the end of it from my mother, who hated her mother-in-law, Catherine). I know a little girl named Catherine, and no, she doesn't have nicknames, which is good. So even for an 8 year old, Catherine is timeless.
I've always had a secret passion for this name. It just sounds mysterious in my opinion.
Famous bearer is Catherine "Kate" Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge.
I do not like this variation. My name is "Katherine" and I find that "Catherine" is a little boring and too 'soft' and 'delicate'. It may be because the K is harsher and less 'soft' than C, and that's like me.
I love this name! When I hear this name, or see it in print, the first word the comes to my mind is regal. After regal, there's a whole slew of other words- eloquent, graceful, compassionate, and finally strength. I envision the embodiment of feminine strength, a women who walks with her held high, with composure and a self-assured confidence. These are all phenomenal traits which are further compounded by the names rich history. To all those who were graced with this lovely name, don't listen to anyone who bad-mouths your name; hold your head up and tell them that you think it's beautiful and that your name is the name of Queens. By the bye, I've not been using this site long, but has anyone noticed that there are some who not only give there personal impression of names but actually outright trash the names. Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but there's no need to be spiteful.
I never really liked this name: I thought it was old and sissy-sounding. Then I read Wuthering Heights, and now, for me, it--and the nickname Cathy--sound appropriate for an intense, spirited girl (maybe even slightly demonic). I love it!
There is a Sacramento metalcore band named Catherine.
I love this name, and this is my favorite spelling of the name. I just wish I heard the name more without a nickname. Some of the nicknames for Catherine are fine, but the name is so pretty that it doesn't need a nickname, and it would be refreshing to meet an actual Catherine for once--instead of a Cate or a Cathy or a Katie.
I think this name is so beautiful and soft. It might be a little common, but there are a lot of great nicknames for it.
I think Catherine is a lovely name. Katherine is nice too, but I tend to be more traditional & Catherine seems to be the spelling used more historically.
I never really liked this name until I read Wuthering Heights. I always thought of somebody named Catherine as being generally boring, and something of a goodie-two-shoes. Cathering Earnshaw/Linton (from Wuthering Heights) wasn't like that in the least... so I like it much better now. I would even go so far as to say I love it.
Catherine Pierce is a member of the duo The Pierces.
This is my name. (But it's spelt Cathryn) I hate this name. It's okay for a pretty, graceful, girly girly. But since I'm none of these the name doesn't suit me so therefore I hate it. I think it spelt Catherine is very princess-y while Katherine doesn't look as much princess-y. (And Cathryn/Kathryn isn't spelt fancy makes it less girly but I still hate it). It's also very popular and it's annoying because there is another Catherine in my year and it drives me mad. The nicknames I have is Cat, Cathy, Cati and Catherina but I try to get everyone to call me by my, self given middle name. (I sort of choose it as my middle name because it's a name I like). So I hate it but that's just me.
It is my friend's name, but we all call her Cati for short. I really think the name though is archaic and it should be put down as void. But whatever floats your boat.
The "hero" of VC Andrews' Dolleganger series is named Catherine Leigh Dollengager/Foxworthy/Sheffield, nicknamed Cathy.
Catherine Bell is the actress who played Major Sarah Mackenzie AKA Mac in the hit tv series JAG.
I really would wish this name wasn't so common because it's one of my favorites. I like it pronounced Cath-reen.
This is my sister's name. I can't say I love it's sound, but I do think Catherine is much more graceful looking then Katherine, and I also like that it's French. I don't like the name Katie/Catie. My sister spells it Katie, even though it's really with a C because she never liked how Catie looked. Weird, huh? No, but I think it's a good name, I just don't like the name Catie, but I do like Cate.
A lovely classic of a name. It's my neighbour's name but she is always called Cassie. I love the nickname Kitty, used in the eighteenth century.
The heroine in Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey is Catherine Morland.
My name's Catherine I always thought it was a pretty name, too long maybe when I was younger (I went by Rinny then) but a perfectly feminine name. The name also means "the pure one" but they may have already said that. I don't remember.
Cate Blanchett was born Catherine Elise Blanchett on 14th May, 1969.
This is my name and I actually really like it, which is luck, as I know a lot of my friends who hate the names their parents gave them. I prefer it with a C, simply because the name Catherine is a strong enough name without adding the extra hardness of a K. The C gives it that extra delicateness and sweetness that is needed in my view.
Catherine, usually Cathy, Ames is a character in John Steinbeck's East of Eden. She is completely evil.
I prefer this spelling to 'Katherine', though I like that spelling as well. Catherine is just softer, and more refined than Katherine.
I'm sorry but I REALLY HATE this name. This name is overused.
This is a gorgeous name. In fact, it's my favorite spelling of Katherine. I know a Catherine who goes by Rindo or Kitty.
There was a Catherin of Aragon. Henry VIII's 1st and longest lasting wife.
The good things about this name are that it's one of those fairly elegant and sophisticated names that don't sound ditzy or immature. The name will likely work on many different types of women, and you can get many different nicknames out of it, like Kate, Katie, Kath, Cat, and Kitty. It's a safe choice that shouldn't lead to bullying or discrimination. The bad things are that the name is overused and quite a boring choice. The name in its entirety sounds almost elitist and snobby. Many parents have probably hastily saddled this name upon their unwanted child. Either way, this probably isn't a name you feel compelled to changing unless you're very eager to be unconventional, and this name is very boring for people who are unconventional.
Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice has two characters named Catherine. Besides the fourth Bennet sister, there is Lady Catherine de Bourgh, the lady of Rosings Park.
This spelling, Catherine, makes me picture a quiet, serious girl with big brown eyes. Katherine and Kathryn, however, are much more dramatic somehow! Catherine is more common in the UK, so it interests me less.
Very classic and beautiful.
My name is Catherine Meredith, and I love it. It's really common, though, and I'm trying to find a good nickname. I hate Cathy, and like Katie, but it's too common. I was thinking of going for some less traditional Catherine nicknames, like Cassie, Callie.
In my opinion, this is the best way to spell `Katherine`. It just seems more sophisticated and classy with a C. I despise those `trying too hard` variants of this beautiful name. `Catherine` will always be the true spelling of this name.
I LOVE this name! It's tons better than Kathryn, Katherine, Katharine, etc. Great combinations would be Catherine Anne, Catherine Rose, and Catherine Mae. Might I add that actress Cheryl Hines has a three-year-old named Catherine Rose. An awesome nickname would be Kitty, despite the fact that it starts with a C.
I think it is a nice name. Katharine is also nice. I would name my daughter Katherine, Katharine, or Catherine.
I love this spelling of Catherine. I really don't like the spelling Katherine or Katheryn.
Actually, Catherine is the correct English spelling of this name. In English phonetics, a 'C' should come before an 'A, ' not a 'K.' The 'K' is more likely a foreign or trendy variation of the proper name, Catherine.
My name is Catherine, and I have always thought it sounded so much more pretty in its full version. There are some creative nicknames out there, but I really hate Katie. There's just too many of them. But I do like it when some of my friends call me Rinnie.
I absolutely love this name! It's much better than Katherine and to me looks far more elegant. I would definitely consider this for a future daughter, I think the nickname Cathy is cute and what's more steeped in English literary history.
I've always wished my name was Catherine. It's just so pretty. There's something gothic about it. It reminds me of Catherine in Wuthering Heights.
I think Catherine is a beautiful and strong name. The first time I heard this name was in a book with Catherine of Aragon featured in it and since then I've always liked the name.
I really love this name! It is such a clasical spelling and the meaning I love as well, pure or beloved. I always picture a quiet, sweet girl who is full of life and energy. I also really like the nickname Cat, don't ask me why. I think I would name one of my children this when I have any.
This is my name, and I do have a special like of it, I suppose. It is just a tad difficult when the nickname is "Catie" and everyone spells it "Katie." And also it always sounded like an older woman's name to me.
I really like this name. I think it's very pretty and classic.
Catherine Webb - an author who was published at the age of 14. She is very talented and her fantasy books are beautiful - I'm suprized they are not more popular since the Harry Potter fantasy craze. Titles include Mirror Dreams and The Extraordinary and Unusual Events of Horatio Lyle.
My middle name is Katarzyna--the Polish version of Catherine. I prefer the American name, Catherine. Much more smooth sounding. Very pretty. My name sounds like "Cot-R-shjin-uh"--hard to type.
There is a novelist named Catherine Coulter.
Pronounced Cath-Er-in.
I prefer the spelling Katherine over this spelling. I don't know why, I just do. I really like the nickname Kat and prefer spelling Kat with a "K" instead of the nickname Cat.
I like this spelling as well. It goes well with most Irish names.
I like this name quite a bit, although most of its nicknames don't appeal to me. Cat is a good one, though, and though I've never seen it used, I think Rin or Rinnie would be very cute.

My Grandmother's name was Catherine. Her nickname was Kitty. I always refered to her as Nanny Kitty! I feel the name Catherine is strong, bold, caring, and beautiful - which totally described my Grandmother.
I'm sorry but I ABSOLUTELY HATE this name. I think that it's too overused and I knew an evil girl who was named this so all around the name is kinda ruined for me!
Catherine makes me think of a woman who is cheerful, attractive and kind.
Catherine is an absolutely wonderful and beautiful name, it screams elegance, style, class and taste.
