Origin: English

Meaning: a dimunitive of Christopher meaning bearing Christ, or Katherine which has several possible meanings: “pure, chaste” from the Greek katharos; or it could come from hekateros, “each of the two; singly”; or from Greek aikia meaning “torture”. It could also be a Coptic name meaning “my consecration of your name”.

Kit is also a word, a short form of kitten, referring to a baby cat.

Kit Snicket first appears at the end of the 11th book (The Grim Grotto) and makes subsequent appearances in the next two books as well. Apparently, she’s the sister of Lemony Snicket, was a friend of the Baudelaire parents, and seems to have a complicated past with Count Olaf.
