Katherine vs. Catherine vs. Kathryn

All of our kids are named in honor of someone in our family. My husband’s grandmother was named Kathryn and we want to use that name for a girl. But neither of us likes the spelling. Would it be terrible if we changed it to Katherine or Catherine? Also we would like to use one of these middle names with it. Like any?? Paige, Eva, Alice, Julia, Lillian, Irene, Ann, Lily, Melissa. Thanks in advance!

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
