What Name did Captain Janeway’s Friends and Family Call Her?

During most of the series we see Captain Janeway being referred to as “Captain” or “Captain Janeway.” The only exceptions that I can remember off the top of my head are when Q would call her Kathy and the few times that Chakotay called her Kathryn. What do you think her friends and family called her? I can’t remember what her fake-Admiral father from the episode Coda called her. I also can’t remember what fake Mark Johnson called her in the episode Persistence of Vision. Of course she was surely addressed by a first name basis by her on screen Voyager lovers: Kashyk (Counterpoint), Michael Sullivan (the hologram from Fair Haven and Spirit Folk), and Jaffen (Workforce Parts I and II). I can’t ever remember anyone calling her Kate, but perhaps I just forgot.

Btw, was my thread title grammatically correct / did it make sense? I couldn't figure out how to word the title! Haha!

I'm suspect over the use of the word "friends" but the rest seems fine.

Ghost Dad/Evil Alien called her "Kathryn" in Coda.

'Cause you don't think she had any or because it looked weird in the thread title? Lol!

I'm not saying she doesn't have friends, but she would never make friends of underlings.

Even her sometimes tender "relationship" with Chakotay is conditional since she has to one day throw him in prison if they ever have to get home.

I"m hoping someone, somewhere called her Kat. Maybe when she was a child.

I forgot that Q Jr. called her Kathy too! But he probably learned that from his Dad!

Re: What Name did Captain Janeway’s Friends and Family Call Her?

Michael Sullivan called her "Katie" and the daVinci hologram called her "Katerina". Only Q and Q Junior call her "Kathy."

Most of the fiction I've read has her friends/family either calling her Kathryn or Katie.

Re: What Name did Captain Janeway’s Friends and Family Call Her?

I wonder though if she had herself called Katie by her holo-lover as a part of playing someone not quite herself.

Re: What Name did Captain Janeway’s Friends and Family Call Her?

Katie, not Kathryn was her character name in the Fairhaven holonovel.

Katie O'Clare.

From Relativity

PATTERSON: You're late.
JANEWAY: Sorry, sir.
PATTERSON: What's the threshold of the H-two molecule?
JANEWAY: Fourteen point seven electron volts.
PATTERSON: Third brightest star in Orion?
JANEWAY: Viewed from where?
PATTERSON: Earth.
JANEWAY: Gamma Orionis, or Bellatrix, if you prefer the original Arabic name.
PATTERSON: Not bad. Now, give me a hug, Katie, that's an order.
JANEWAY: I wasn't expecting a pop quiz.
PATTERSON: Just wanted to make sure all those pips haven't made you forget you're a scientist first.
JANEWAY: How could they? I still have nightmares about your fractal calculus final.
Well, some Admiral no-one from her past could get away with calling her Katie.

The DaVinci hologram would have been talking in Italian unless Janeway instructed it to speak in English, but the Universal translator would have wrestled what he said into English.

Maybe her name was not translated from the original Italian?

Re: What Name did Captain Janeway’s Friends and Family Call Her?

She might be comfortable with a variety of name permutations. Or old farts calling her Katie might be a function of the old fart paternalism.

Holograms still wouldn't be "friends" or "family", it's a video game.

However too answer the question, I figured her family and friends would call her "Katie" 1) as a sign of affection & 2) because they watched her grow up and usually childhood nicknames like "Katie" stick. No matter how old you get, her family and long time close friends would call her by her childhood name.

Lets ask the novel readers?

Other than the Mark's wife... After Voyager got home, does she interact with anyone out of uniform?
