You may be considering a new name for your baby girl. But what about names that start with K? You might not know it, but there are countless names that start with the letter “K.” The problem is some of these names can sound like they’re spelled with the letter C. This blog post will help you avoid those pitfalls and find a name that’s perfect for your little one!
My name is Kate. I chose this for my daughter’s middle name because it starts with K, but doesn’t sound like Cate and Catherine are spelled differently.
Kate – kate: noun meaning an attractive woman whose hair has a reddish tinge to it; originally the nickname of Shakespeare’s character Katharine in “The Taming of The Shrew” (1596)
- wCatherine – catherine: variant spelling of Katherine, from Latin Catarina or Greek Aikaterine [the feminine form], literally “pure one”
- Katharine – katheryn: From the Hebrew קָטַריין qaˈṭāryyn, meaning “from the vineyard
- Katherine – katheryn: variant spelling of Katharine
- Cate – cate: an old oman; a cat or other female feline mammal.
In this case I chose to use Kate because it starts with K and doesn’t sound like Cate is spelled differently.”
“Kate” for my daughter’s middle name because it starts with K, but doesn’t sound like “Cate” or Catherine are spelled differently. It also has the same pronunciation as Katherine (or phonetically), which means that people can pronounce her first and last names together correctly without confusion. Plus, there are several different meanings for the name Kate in English-language cultures, including “pure”, which means that this was a nice choice for my daughter’s middle name.
The K-name I would recommend is Katie or Katherine, but not Katelina (which can be spelled two different ways).
katheryn: variant spelling of Katharine
Katie / Katherine are the only good choices to follow with K, and they’re both starting with it as well. The name Katherine may sound feminine because it starts with a “K” letter when said out loud.” Do not try to find a name that starts with K because you want your child’s initials to spell something K is one of the most popular baby girl names, so it will be easy for people to remember and pronounce
It was difficult trying to come up with an original spelling or meaning when we were looking at our options. It felt like there weren’t any other ways I could make my daughter stand out while also having her first initial on the top row.
The best thing about this decision though has been how many compliments she gets every day! You don’t see too many kids around with these letters in their name which often leads me into discussing where they are from (or if they’re an English major). I know it’s important that a name be easy to spell and pronounce in order for people to remember it, but now I’m glad we tried something different! The only downside is that finding her initials on social media or business cards can sometimes be confusing. (It took me some time before I could figure out who was KK.) It didn’t take long though—a few years at most—before she got used to the letters herself and began using them as her nickname with friends when they were too difficult to say all together. “

Plan of Action: Continue writing the next paragraphs of text to finish this blog post, which is about a mother’s experience naming her daughter with K as the first letter in their name and how it affected meeting other people who are also named that way. Note that there will be at least three more sentences but not all should necessarily follow logically from one another to avoid repetition or seem choppy! We want a variety of thoughts on what she would like other parents considering similar names for their daughters to know before they make decisions. The last sentence can tie into an invitation for readers reach out if they have any questions or comments themselves! Remember
- Having a name that starts with “K” is hard.
- It’s even harder for boys because they typically have to spell out Kaitlyn, Katherine or Kelly on their school papers and forms.
- I want to avoid this as much as possible for my daughter by finding names that are more gender neutral like Kaylee, Katy or Kiera which start with the letter “C”.
- If you’re looking for popular beginning girl names in 2018 – it turns out there’s only one: Kylie!
- Some of the names I’m considering for my daughter are Kendra, Kendall and Kayla.
- There’s also Kiley which is spelled with a “Y”. And while you might think it sounds more feminine at first because there’s an extra letter in the name – people just pronounce it like Kyle so that doesn’t make much difference!
- A few other girl names ending in K include Kenzie, Kyndall, Kira, Karley or Kalissa. (The last sentence can tie into an invitation to readers reach out if they have any questions!) Remember: Having a name that starts with “K” is hard. It’s even harder for boys since they typically have to spell out Kaitlyn, Kenzie, or Kira.

This was the first time I’ve felt so empowered to search for a name because of its meaning. When my husband and I found Kiana, we knew it had to be her name. The definition of the word is “beautiful,” which she certainly is!
We were very excited when our daughter was born on Christmas Day in 2016, but by New Year’s Eve day 2017, that excitement turned into sadness as we lost her at birth due to complications from prematurity. We had planned out what all three kids would wear this year- big brother with his denim overalls holding baby sister in pink fleece pajamas while dad held up their new baby sister wearing an outfit they picked out just for her; middle sister wearing her Christmas dress and big brother in his new outfit.
Heres the thing: she’s not dead, you know? In a way that is so much more real than my words can ever be anyway, because I was there to witness it. She just went into God’s arms. You see, when we lost our daughter at birth last year on New Years Eve day 2017 due to complications from prematurity, those two little boys were born 15 minutes later- both healthy and perfect with no lasting effects of being premature – which means they are now 16 months old as I write this post today! That baby girl will always live inside them too; either through their laughter or even a simple glance up into the sky for one second. She went to Heaven and joined her big sister, who died in infancy from a rare genetic disorder. They are now with their Daddy up there; he was an angel that always watched over them down here. And I know it’s hard for me too without him..but they have each other forever now – which is the most beautiful thing about life after death because they will never be alone ever again! Heres what: she didnt die- not really at least- just like all of us dont when we go home to God one day (or even before then). We’re still living on through our children and grandchildren and siblings and parents or friends, so you just need to let yourself live fully until your time comes. That
