We haven't come up with a name. I want it to be a name with some character, some strength, something my daughter will be proud of. We've pooled together some ideas:
My wife likes all my names but I only like one of hers: Heather. I'm really pushing for Caitlin, but I can concede on a Serbian version of the name: Katarina.
What do you guys think?
People will call her patty
Patty cakes if they want to be obnoxious
Always consider what people will shorten it to. Especially for girls because everyone wants to talk cutesy to them.
Patricia is what I named my period.
I don't even remember how it started. But every time I meet a Patricia I almost want to exclaim, OMG THATS MY PERIOD'S NAME!
...just food for thought OP. I'll think of menstrual cycles from afar.
Patricia is a name I've always associated with loose women and lesbians. The only Patricia I've known is a bull dyke who used to brag about having sex with loads of women even though she was a super repulsive individual, both inside and out.
So everyone is going to call her Kat, she'll throw daggers at people, and in general be a complete nuisance 24/7 teleporting around assassinating people. Great idea, OP.
My name is Caitlin, exactly how you have it spelled, and I'd rec. it. It means "pure" and I'm very proud of it, there are tons of nicknames to go with it but none that are insulting, and it tends to be common but has it's own uniqueness due to the way it is spelled.
Truly a glorious first name.
I moved to a Spanish-speaking country and everyone calls me "Catalina" now. Katarina is equally as lovely, but more unique and interesting.
