    Our little boy was named William, it was the obvious choice as that's my husband's granddad's name, and my maiden name was Williamson.

    I've just found out that I'm pregnant again and trying to think of names, I haven't thought of any boy names yet but we did have Kate as our girl name last time which I still like, but can't really have now following the royal wedding :haha:

    We thought of Kate as my OH's mum's name's Catherine, both my grandmothers were Kathleen, my sister's Kate and my mum's middle name's Kay, can anyone suggest any other variations on the theme that we could maybe use?

    No idea on any boy names yet but still time yet.

    Thanks

    Kitia- I think it means "kitty cat" in Russian. :) And "Kit" is a really cute nickname.

    Well if your sister's name is Kate... i wouldn't name your baby Kate anyhow :shrug:

    Maybe Kate/Kay/Catherine as a middle name...

    Variations:

    Katelyn
    Kayla
    Kaylee
    Kathryn
    Kaylana

    Although, in all honesty... i would use something totally different... why does everyone in the family need the same name variation??

    Personally I think you should have a William, Kate, Pippa and Harry and maybe a Diana or a Beatrice for good measure haha (j/k) what about:

    Cacey/Kacey
    Cailin/Caelin
    Cait
    Chelsea

    I like the alternative spelling of Kate that some people suggested. Also Caitlin/Kaylin (sp?)/Kayleigh. Also, I wouldn't worry about the royal wedding, especially if William ends up going by a shorter name ;)
