We don’t know whether we’re having a girl or boy yet…won’t know until March but of course we’ve started playing around with names. If we have a girl I know I want Katherine somewhere in it. My moms name is Katherine and it’s also my middle name.
Which one of these do you like more?
Katherine Claire (We’ll call her Kate)

Can someone move this to Babies? I didn’t mean to post it in Beehive…

I think Emma Katherine flows better. It’s a lovely name.

I’ve always loved the name Kate (or Katie). I like Emma, too, but I think it is the 2nd most popular name right now or it was in the last few years. Not sure if that matters to you or not. But I like both names!

I love Emma Katherine! It’s a beautiful name. I think it flows much better than the first.

I love both, but I have to admit that Emma is “over done”, so to speak. I work in an elementary school and have 3 on my caseload of about 20 girls. So…I vote for Kate!!

I would chose other, but that’s not an option. I feel like Kate, Katie, Katherine, and Emma are all soooo common. That would really bother me, but if it’s not important to you then I would go with Emma Katherine. But if that does matter to you, I would still use Katherine as a middle name, but think of a different first name.

I agree with @melisslp. Emma is an incredibly common name now for little girls. For the last 2 years we’ve had at least 2 in our group.
I prefer Katherine just because there are more things you can do with it, it won’t sound dated in the same way as Emma will and there are lots of nicknames she could use.

Gotta vote for Kate! (Obviously)
Emma has become way too popular lately.

Im biased because my name is Clare (spelled the correct way!!!) but I just like Katherine Claire better

I voted for Emma, but I wanted to add – I’d see how it worked with your last name as well.

I love Katherine. Classic. Emma is just really popular right now, and I feel like Katherine has more weight to it.

Also- Kate can be so many different names if she so chooses.

I voted Emma. I <3 that name. I also don’t generally believe in giving kids names with the intention of using a nickname. I feel like why not just name them the nickname instead, you know?
