@Daisyb:  I came here wanting to suggest a name very similar to Kathryn,  but you already had that covered! What kind of names do you like?

I don’t have any names to suggest. I have a way to narrow down the list, though.

You could choose the middle name based on how well it goes with the meaning of the name Kathryn. 

The name Kathryn means pure, clear, or innocent. When you find some names you like you can search for the meaning of them and see how well each name complements Kathryn. If you would like a name that has a specific meaning, such as kind or gentle, you could search for names with that meaning. 

I know this isn’t exactly what you’re asking for, but maybe it will make the process of finding a name easier or lead you to consider names that you normally wouldn’t.

Since you replaced rine with ryn it makes the name appear sharp/pointy, so maybe consider a middle name that’s more aesthetically “bouncy”, if you will, to even it out. Perhaps Kathryn Renee, Kathryn Annabelle, Kathryn Aria, Katheryn Cecilia, etc.

@Daisyb:  My BFF’s name is Kathryn! Her middle name is Marie. Apparently it’s a popular combo! I Googed it to protect her privacy, and she didn’t make the first page!

@Daisyb:  Kathryn Avery is really pretty! I was thinking of using Avery as a future middle name for my future hypothetical daughter 🙂

The first thing that popped into my mind was Kathryn Rose, I don’t know why! Kathryn is such a classic name, I’m sure a lot of middle names will sound great with it.

@Daisyb:  One of my friends named her daughter Kathrynn Joy.  I think it’s beautiful.

ETA:  And her nickname is Katie, which also sounds really cute with Joy.

My mom’s name is Kathryn Ann. I think it’s nice that you’re spelling it the way you are. But I’m biased.
