Katherine Aubrey. to me random Y’s where they are not needed looks tacky.

I definitely prefer Katherine. It looks more classic, elegant and classy. Kathryn looks a little bit tacky to me, sorry.

What is Hepburn?

Kathryn isn’t tacky. It’s been a hugely popular variant of Katherine/Catherine for decades. Wow really... random y’s are often tacky but this definitely isn’t one of those cases.

Katherine Hepburn and Aubrey Hepburn were the best actresses of he 20th century. The main reason people even use the name Aubrey today is because of Aubrey Hepburn, you know from Breakfast at Tiffany’s?

^You mean Audrey?

Haha! Guess she wasn’t too well known, since her name was actually Audrey!

Sorry. I’ve never heard or Katherine or Aubrey/Audrey Hepburn before. It don’t think it matters to us anyway. Thanks for your opinions though!

I’d prefer Katherine Audrey Van Tassel! I associate Aubrey with boys.

What the heck? These responses have all got to be fake.

Who hasn’t heard of Audrey Hepburn?

Who uses Aubrey for a BOY?

And who thinks Kathryn is a tacky spelling of Katherine? It’s been almost as popular for just as long.

I agree with you Sara! I’m shocked by some responses! lol I prefer Kathryn Aubrey, it looks nicer to me. Katherine is also a longer name and your last name is fairly long. I say go with Kathryn Aubrey Van Tassel! :) and also, I’ve NEVER heard of Aubrey on a boy! It’s used on soooooo many girls now!

I looked up who Audrey Hepburn is and found that she was born in 1929 and died in 1993. People, I’m 25 (born 1988), never was a big television/movie person, and expecting my first child. Do you really expect me to know some actress who was most popular during the 50s and 60s?

Besides, the middle name is Aubrey (not Audrey), and that is not what my post is about anyway. I asked for a spelling preference between Katherine and Kathryn.

Kathrine seems better. Now a days there are too many people just throwing the Y’s out there. But whatever you choose will look beautiful on your baby. I love Katherine/Katheryn Aubrey. It sounds fantastic.

My name is Kathryn. I am not a huge fan of how my name is spelled because it is so often mispronounced or misspelled. However, I wouldn’t change it because I was named after my great grandmother. Unless you are Slavic (like my family), I’d recommend using the English spelling of the name
