From name meaning to origin, and scripture verse, here are 100+ of the Best Baby Middle Names for Kate.

Congrats on your new baby girl! I have put together a list of the top baby names for the lovely name “Kate.” You will find the meaning of her name, the origin, and the scripture verse along with 100+ of the Best Baby Middle Names for Kate.

It can be such a tough decision to pick out the right name for your baby. I certainly thought about it for months when I was pregnant with my own babies. There are so many names to choose from!

Though most expectant parents who come to the hospital know what they are going to name their baby, there are occasionally those who are waiting to see what their baby looks like before making a decision. I’ve had several couples ask me as their postpartum nurse what I thought about name choices. What a weighty question! 

I believe that a child’s name is important. They more than likely carry it with them through life, and I also feel a name can fit their purpose and personality. Obviously, you believe it’s important too or you wouldn’t be here!

How to Choose the Right Name

As I put together this list for you, I carefully thought about names that go with your baby girl. I didn’t copy and paste or willy-nilly write names down. As you pray and ponder about what to name your baby, I encourage you to look up what their middle name would mean. Other ways to find the perfect middle name would be to say your baby’s full name several times in a row. Say it loudly like you are calling for them at a park. Do you like it? 

Another thing to watch for is the initials the first name, middle name, and last name will make. Be sure it doesn’t spell anything you aren’t on board with. Sometimes Kate comes from the name of a family member, and other times it’s used in different ways. Some parents choose baby’s first name to be Kate because it is short for the full first name Katherine or simply because it is found among classic names. Regardless, it’s a beautiful name for your little girl.
