Catherine Katherine Katharine Kathryn
Carrie Keri Kerry Cari
Charis/Carys/Karis

We named our daughter Charis with this spelling because I *thought* it was the closest to the original Greek spelling.

My daughter’s name is Callie. I chose this spelling because I fell in love with it as a teen--probably because it’s similar to my name, Christie. However as I started learning more about names I found out that Cali- is a Greek prefix meaning beautiful, while Kali is the name of the Hindu Goddess of destruction who wears a necklace of skulls... kinda cemented my idea of the best spelling.
