I've seen a lot of people on Reddit and various chat rooms who are a
fan of Kt as a name.

- It fits well in a square, which makes it great for logos.
- It's unusual, but not weird looking.
- It looks kind of like an element on a periodic table.
- In Google and DuckDuckGo searches for "kt", most things on the first
page were pretty obscure and unrelated to software.
- kT is used in a lot of plasma parameters.
- The K-T extinction event was the end of a previous era and the
beginning of our era.
- Kt is tool kit backwards.
- Katie could become the mascot for Kt.
