"Wow, am I the first to rate this?? :D I think it is a pretty good name, kinda delicate. There are a few nicknames ('abbreviations', if you will) but not many. I think it is waaaayyyyy to femimine for a boy, and from the search results, most people thought that too :) The only downside is that I always think of Katherine from Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew :)" Dec. 5, 2017:
