"It seems more like a girls name ( probably cuz I no a Kitty and they calll her kit for short. For boys I think of Kip cuz my cousin named Kip . But either or boy or girl I love the name" Apr. 15, 2018:
"My son's name is Kit (full name is Christopher). We live in Missouri with a famous Kit Bond, so most people pick it up quickly. We love it since no one else has the name. Consequently, my son has the exact same first and last name. Most people call him "Kit Bond" and not Kit." Dec. 22, 2017:
"My fourteen year old son's name is Kit and he loves it because none of his peers have the same name. I've met a couple of other much younger children named Kit so I wonder whether it's going to become popular." Sep. 7, 2010:
"I'm a Kit - But I'm also a girl. :) I have NEVER met someone with the same name as myself. I think Kit is a really fun and unique name. I've thought about whether I would change my name if I had the chance, and I decided I wouldn't. I love my name and think it's perfect for me!" Mar. 24, 2010:
"My name is Kit, but I'm a girl. I love this name, becuase no one I have ever met (male of female) has had this for their real name. I've met a few Chirstophers, and more than a few Kathrines, but I'm the only Kit I know. Despite the fact that it's three letters, I'm frequently asked to spell it. On top of that, I have heard the "Break me off a peice of that KitKat bar" song one too many times and have been asked a lot of strange things, such as "Can I call you KitKat?" Or, "Can I call you Kitty?" That honestly doesn't bother me, as I love, love love the name, but be careful with this. I would love to see some more girl Kits out there. I know that it's untraditional, but I love it!! Name your child Kit!" Jun. 18, 2008:
"I'm a Christopher, but having been born in the UK in 1975, there were 7 of us in my class at school, so I have been known as Kit since then which I love, kind of raffish!" Apr. 29, 2007:

"My name is Kit Patrick Ramirez
In school I have always gone by Kit. As a kid I liked the name patrick better, it was more conventional.
As adult I like both and use them both and are not as quick to correct new acquaintances or explain that I use both names. Both belong to me and make up different experiences in my life. That?s that." Jul. 17, 2020:
"My son in called Kit, full name is Christopher. I love the name Kit. It's unique and fits my son's personality well. I'll admit that strangers seem a bit surprised when they find out his name and often ask me to repeat myself. But Kit is the original nickname for Christopher after all. Kit Harrington of Game of Thrones. And there was a character named Kit in American Horror Story." Feb. 8, 2015:
"I love this name. just Kit for a boy not short anything" Mar. 5, 2013:
"I named my son Kit. He is four months old. I get annoyed when people think he's a girl because of his name. His father's name is Christopher and surprisingly few people realize Kit was the origional nickname for Christopher." Apr. 5, 2009:
