The rules: My family has a naming convention with the female names: they must all start ariationswith a "K" sound. The following can be used as examples and have all been ruled out for one reason or another: Carol Christina (and all it's variations) Cloe Katrina Kaitlyn Karen

Hmm, I wonder why you chose that name? ;-P Unfortunately, it's already used as a shortening of Katrina, so it's taken :-(

Hey I like Kati! Unfortuantely my sister's name is shortened to Katie way too often for it to work well.

Being the wife, I wanted to say that isn't quite the rule. For a girl the first name has to start with a C or K. That's it. We also have Chelsea and Kathy. Of course we don't want to re-use the names already used. I have a few names I like but he doesn't so I am interested to see what you all will say too.

I like those both, too. Unfortunately, it'd end up being shortened to "Chris" (or "Crys/Krys") which is already used as a shortening of Christina which is alreaady taken ... I just thinbk it'd cause too much confusion :-( Thanks for the suggestion, though!

Thanks for all the ones so far and good luck coming up with some not already taken! I look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

My favourite! My sons name is Kai, and I would like two more boys Kade and Kaelen and a little girl, who I would like to name Kiara, do you like that name? I also like Kya for a girl, Kiama, Kirra, Kasha, Kianna Ok, so I have a thing with unusual K names, oops... Hope I have helped a little bit, when are you due?
• United States
25 Oct 06
Oooh, I like the variation and the boys names too. Becasue of our genetics, the odds are about 1:3 that we'll have a boy and since we alredy beat them once, we are expecting the next one to be a girl. Some of our best friends have a little guy named Kai who is an absolute sweetie. We aren't due until about a year and a half from now *grins* As long as it took us to agree on a name last time, we thought we'd better get started in advance.

Here are some suggestions: KAELIN: meaning Rejoicer, Waterfall KAELYN: meaning "meadow" KAIDA: "little dragon" KARIS: "graceful" KALIYA: (kah LEE a) a nice alternative to the Kaylee/Kayla continuum KAMALA: meaning 'lotus flower,' this name is used for both girls and boys in India. (pron. something like /KAHM ah la/ KARIZA: Pronounced /kah REE za/ , this name is zippy, yet exotic sounding. KARUNA: meaning 'merciful' in Sanskrit, this is a beautiful, feminine name. KATIA (also spelled KATYA, KATJA, KAATJE etc.): no matter how you spell it, this is a lovely form of Katherine/Katarina that is used in many European countries. KHADIJAH This beautiful Arabic name means 'premature child.' The name of the Prophet Muhammad's first wife, she was the first convert to Islam. She was also the mother of all of his children. Khadijah is probably best known for being the character Queen Latifah plays on Living Single. KIARA: Celtic/Gaelic for Small, dark KIRA from a Persian word meaning, perhaps, 'sun.' It's the feminine form of Cyrus. It's fairly common in Russia KIYA: pronounced /KEE yah/, this was the name of King Tut's mother. KSENIA: This Russian form of Xenia is an exotic, unusual, modern-sounding name.
