I used to hate it but now that i'm older i've become more comfortable. Since i've started using Kitty as my nickname i really started liking the name.

Did not care for my name when I was younger at all. K sound was harsh to me. In H.S. friends called me Kat. Which I like fine. But as I have gotten older I really love my birth name. Sounds so feminine and classy. Hope you like your name too.

I was named after the Elvis Presley song "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen".

People often call me Kath or Kathy, which I do not like! I think before shortening a name or using a nickname, they should ask me first.
People often misremember my name as Katherine or Katelyn.
