4) Oh well i'm going to call you Katherine anyway

Thanks, but that's not my name. How about I just call you Steve?

5) At least 4 different people in your class will be called Katie

Naturally your name now has to become Katie T in order to distinguish you from all the other Katie's in the room.

6) Your friends will give you cat inspired nicknames

Kitty kat, Katie Kat, Catface etc.

7) In primary school, your coat peg was no doubt labelled with 'Katie the Kite'

Or perhaps 'King' or 'Kit Kat'. Turns out not many words begin with K.

8) Why don't you call yourself Kate? Katie is so childish

Well it works for Katy Perry so it works for me
