  • "It's beautiful. Every one spells it wrong tho. I like it how it's unique :)" Nov. 16, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like this spelling. It looks nice to me. Katharine Hepburn spelled her name this way. I also like Kathryn." Oct. 3, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "People often misspell it as "KathErine" ever since I was a little girl. But I love it. I am in good company with this spelling." Jul. 29, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate
