"I have not met anyone around me where I live with the way my name is spelled. I think it makes me the unique person I'm today =) I find it interesting that everyone pronounces their name a little differently. I pronounce my name like Kat-Tea-Uh" Jan. 30, 2018:
"My name is Katia ! And I love my name. It?s so unique and beautiful and perfect for me . People always mispronounce it or call me Katie which if it?s CLEARLY an A at the end instead of an E, PRONOUNCE the A. Don?t assume it?s Katie bc you don?t know how to pronounce and it looks closely like Katie, but I didn?t misspell my name on purpose so stick with the A ? lol
Didn?t like my name growing up bc it was hard to pronounce. But now that I?ve gotten older I love it more ! People always compliment on it ." Oct. 2, 2017:
"My name is Katia pronnounced Kah Teeaa and although I have to correct sibs and deal with them thinkong I'm a boy I absolutely love my name and have found another Katia who shares the struggle!" Nov. 15, 2016:
"I used to not like my name because of the fact that people couldn't pronounce it. Honestly, I don't understand how difficult it could be to pronounce "Kah-tee-ah". My mother is from Europe and most Europeans don't have a problem pronouncing my name, though most Americans (with the exception of Hispanic Americans)do. When I was in the second grade, much to my mother's frustration, people had to call me "Kathy" because no one knew how to pronounce my name.
Now I happen to find my name unique and beautiful. My ethinicity is an exotic mix so I think that my name fits me perfect. Not to mention, I've always found that names begining with the letter 'k' sound unique. I've only met one girl with this same name and I'm glad not to be just another Christina, Erica or Jessica."

"My name is Katia and I love my name lol. In school it was kinda frustarating people trying to say it but it was fun. I have only met 2 girls with the name Katia and its real cool." Sep. 15, 2009:
"my name is katia as well and I personally luv itt. On the first day of school many teachers mispronounce it and whatnot but they love it so much when I correct them that they end up learning how to say it bc they love it 2.itz pronounced kat-ia" Feb. 15, 2009:
"My name is Katia, and Most people call me "Ka-shee-ah" becuase of the "tia", or "Kay-tee-ah". All my new teachers read off my name wrongly, and it's annoying. When people write down my name for stuff they always assume it's spelt with a Y instead of the I, or it begins with a C instead of a K. But I still like my name and it's better than some names, and I guess I like that. I wouldn't be Katia if I wasn't Katia, now would I? My name is pronounced "Kah-tee-ah", by the way. :)" Nov. 24, 2007:
"My real name is Katherine, but I have an Italian friend who calls me Katia. My English speaking friends call me Kath, but I've always found the 'th' sound a bit heavy and difficult for some foreign speakers to pronounce. I would have preferred to have been christened Katia as I think it's a beautiful name." Jun. 22, 2007:
"My name is Katia, I pronounce my name CA-tia. I love my name most people think i russian but my name is short for CA-ta-leeya. I love my name!" Aug. 12, 2006:
"it's a russian name. here i go by 'katie' or 'kate', because when i moved here i didn't like the name katia. mine is pronounced 'kat-ya'" Jul. 3, 2006:
"The name Katia is great! I have had people who say they love it. I like it because not many people have this name and it makes me feel unique. I think this name is beautiful. I have had probably a million people misprounce it or spell it wrong. It's funny anytime someone knows a Katia and i tell them my name they say something about. I do get a little frustrated because anytime i want something personalized I can't find it on the shelf. But i love my name!!!.

MANY PEOPLE DONT KNOW HOW TO SAY IT I DONT CARE I TEACH THEM AND THEY LEARN :) BUT I WOULNT CHANGE MY NAME I LOVE IT" Jan. 15, 2008:
"Katia is my name. Mine is pronounced Kay-sha, I love it. I think its feminine and beautiful. I didn't like having a different name growing up, but as an adult I wouldn't change it for the world. I just wish the name books had pronunciations in them. I see my name frequently, but it is usually pronounced more as KAT-ia. I love my name, had it tattooed on my back actually. Not only does it sound nice, its very pretty in print. -Katia, 29, Florida" Aug. 8, 2005:
