- I also like the spelling Katherine. This name is quite possibly my #1 favorite. I always felt like I should've been a Katharine / Katherine. I love Kate and Kitty as nicknames.
- I like that "a" in the middle, like Katharine Hepburn. Katharine to me is a strong, sexy name which also suits little girls (Katie and Kate) but which can be used as a full name once the child grows up. Although it's an old name, the "a" in it makes it a bit different.
Katharine is a variant of Katherine. It is the form used by American actress Katharine Hepburn.
