"It's beautiful. Every one spells it wrong tho. I like it how it's unique :)" Nov. 16, 2014:
"My mom named me Katharine after Katharine Hepburn. People do get confused, and some of what I've noticed has already been mentioned here. The second A is such a subtle difference though that my High School Diploma was spelled incorrectly. I asked them to have it changed and it was written on with a permanent marker! I'm unimpressed. I made sure my college diploma was spelled correctly." Jun. 27, 2007:

"It's often spelled incorrectly. Also, people pronounce the second A incorrectly. I'm frequently called "Kath - AR - rin" rather than "Kat - rin" however, I am still very proud of the spelling of my name!" Jul. 13, 2005:
