Oh, and by the way I´m not saying that @PiecesOfKate isn´t unique or anything! :open_mouth:

Better be careful what I say, she´s in possesion of the power of X-Files spoilers!


#43

Sorry, I thought it was one of the different forms derived from Katherine


#44

You’re right, the name is derived from Katherine. But I would never refer to myself as a Katherine.
(Anyway, I was just joking :wink: )

My mum always used to get annoyed when people called her Joanne instead of Joanna.


#45

Same, and seconded :wink: I was christened Katie and tend to shorten it to Kate.

I find it really weird when people shorten others’ names without any indication that they go by that.

Oh that´s a surprise, I thought it was the other way round.

See, you are unique! Uniquely diabolic!


#47

See, I’ve had other people think that in the past, but I find it odd since ‘Kate’ is clearly shorter than ‘Katie’.

That’s right. Mwahaha! MWAHAH- *chokes on grape*


#48

Yeah but nicknames aren´t always about being shorter but being…cuter…for lack of a better word.

Kate sounds more formal than Katie. I wouldn´t call a Kate a Katie unless she was a real good friend.


#49

That’s interesting. I hear it the other way round. But that might be because ‘KATIE!’ usually means my mum is telling me off.


#50

Kat would be even shorter. :cat:


#51

It would be, but I think most Kats are Katherines originally. That might just be the people I know though.

Please don’t joke about spelling errors.


#52

So anyway, if you rather be called Kate than Katie I´ll take notice. :slight_smile:

:smiling_imp:


#53

I use Kat as my name in videogames, but nowhere else. Probably because I was asked to enter a nickname for some game or other in the past, and I don’t really have any nicknames.

Except more recently, my friend I studied German with calls me Katja (the j pronounced as a ‘y’) :smile:


#54

Common name in germany. It´s russian I believe.


#55

Yes, but I haven’t heard that name for years…


#56

You maybe need to get out a bit more…


#57

All this talk of British Katies and now I have that Libertines song in my head, What Katie Did.

Never!

Hey, no worries! I´m with you actually:

You’re capable of going off topic even in a topic about memes.

That’s some real talent here!
