pronunciation of Katharine from my 5 year old's perspective
So I guess we say Katharine's name with 3-syllables even though I would have thought we said it with 2 maybe 2 and 1/2. My daughter is 5 and she was playing a pretend game inspired by the Magic Tree House series. In the books, there is a character Kathleen. She kept saying she was Kathaleen. It was driving my 7 year old son crazy and he kept trying to correct her to which she would respond "No, I'm KathAleen."
