"While Katherine is a name from the mists of time and is a classic, it doesn't seem like an especially pretty name. To my mind, it conjures up images of a spinster librarian or someone with their hair in a bun so tight in crosses their eyes. The sound of it is rather "heavy" and ponderous. With this name, it's best to use a lighter nickname, like Kathy or Katie. If a person is drawn to Katherine, however, perhaps a more feminine name, like Kathleen, would fit the bill." Feb. 2, 2009:
