So I've always liked the name Kate, Katy, Katherine - and Cate, Caty, Catherine. It'd be nice to name my daughter that one day...but I can't. Two of my cousins - one on each side of the family - have named their daughter katelynn. They are both "katie". So, no katy for me. I prefer the "katy" spelling.
Oh well. I've got other names though so nothing to worry about. Just none of my cousins better use the names Abigail or Molly. I claim them. None of you family members can have them. I already gave up Isabelle and Katy, I won't give up anymore and I will name them one or the other regardless of whether there's already one in the family.
