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!

Katherine Ann or Paige are really the only ones that flow well.

I don’t think it would be terrible to change the spelling at all. You’d definitely still be honouring her. Katherine is my favourite spelling.

From your middle name choices I love:

Katherine Eva
Katherine Alice
Katherine Julia
Katherine Lillian
Katherine Lily

Katherine is my favourite spelling and the most common.
