Which name do you prefer for Kate (Catherine) Middleton?
This poll was requested by Donna B.

We all know what the tabloids say which name Wills' girlfriend prefers but I'd like to know which you prefer. Vote in the poll and say why you picked the name you did. Above all let's have some fun with it.

Thank you Ysbel!

I picked Kate mainly because it's a cute name and I like the sound of Princess Kate, Lady Kate, or whatever title she'll get when she Marries Wills.
William and Kate Wales, 2007 is THE year.......maybe, lol.:flowers:

my vote is Catherine because she told Sun newspaper she says let her called Catherine very respectives because her real name of her birth name

Princess Robijn 01-04-2007 05:15 AM

I voted Catherine :flowers: I like that name ;)

Princess Catherine is much better than Princess Kate but for me I find Kate rolls of my tongue more.

It is just habit, because she has been known as Kate from her beginnings in the press that is stuck in my brain.

Catherine sounds very regal to me, much more than Kate (even if I like this name a lot). Princess Kate... Sounds trash too me. Prince William and Princess Catherine sounds good, regal, dignified...

It has to be Catherine, IMO. It sounds so much better with Princess than Kate. :flowers:

Donna B. 01-04-2007 09:08 AM

Wow, this is so interesting! I truly thought "Kate" would win hands down. "Catherine" isn't so bad, I suppose I could get used to it.;)

The true test will be when William and Kate/Catherine get engaged and we'll get to hear what he calls her. I've seen a video either on this site or YouTube and William introduced himself as Will. It was a video from when he was in Chile and he was in front of a class of kids.

I prefer Kate because it doesn't sound so stuffy, which is what I think the Winsdors need, IMO. I really hope Prince William hangs onto this girl, she would do the country proud, she acts like she would make a great Princess.

Maxie 01-04-2007 09:33 AM

Catherine of course.
Like there are any other options...:rofl:

Nad25 01-04-2007 10:17 AM

Catherine is a beautiful name and she should be called that instead of 'kate' !

selrahc4 01-04-2007 10:51 AM

I'm all for using real names. I also prefer William over Wills and Henry over Harry.

LadyK 01-04-2007 12:15 PM

My vote is for Kate...personal preference- I just always think of her as Kate Middleton. Maybe it works better as Wills and Kate, or Prince William and Princess Catherine. Other members, do you agree?

ZandraRae 01-04-2007 12:27 PM

Agree LadyK. I don't calle him William, but instead Wills, but when I put the Prince with it then William. Kind of confusing, sorry. But as for Kate, it's always Kate.

christinacg 01-04-2007 01:06 PM

I picked Kate. I think if she becomes princess she should be called Catherine, but thats a large name to say all the time so I think Kate is a cute nickname.

aldu 01-04-2007 03:28 PM

I voted catherine, It sounds more appropriate than kate

ysbel 01-04-2007 03:51 PM

Hey guys, this thread was meant to be light hearted. If you want to talk about Kate's suitability, the seriousness of her parking tickets, etc. take a look at the Expectations of Kate thread (as I'm sure you all have)

I voted for Catherine as Kate to me is a little girl's name while Catherine is the name for when they grow up.

Sister Morphine 01-04-2007 10:20 PM

I chose Catherine. I think it's a very regal sounding name, I think it's grown-up sounding, and whatever title she has when [or if] she marries William, it will sound better with "Catherine" coming after it. Princess, Duchess, Countess, Lady, Queen.....doesn't matter.

I like that Kitty was thrown in there. My cousin's name is Katherine and everyone calls her Kitty. That might be a little too informal for public use, but maybe Wills calls her that when they're alone. ;)

Laviollette 01-04-2007 10:31 PM

'Catherine' is more regal especially for a princess...but Kate is not a princess so I voted that I prefer 'Kate'.
