Caitlyn Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Feminine; USAGE: English (Modern); PRONOUNCED: KAYT-lin. A variant of CAITLIN. Caitlyn is a slight respelling of the Irish Caitlín, which is the Celtic equivalent of Catherine. The name was brought to the British Isles in the Middle Ages by way of the Norman French version, Cateline. All the Catherine names originated from the Greek “Aikaterinë” (see Catherine) which translates to “pure one, clear, innocent.” The name was borne by an early saint who was martyred in Egypt and came to be associated with courage and purity, qualities that were attractive to the Celts. — This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Aikaterī́nē (Αἰκατερῑ́νη)”, which in turn derives from “katharós (καθαρός)”, meaning “clean, clear, pure”. In turn, the name means “pure, clear of dirt, clean of shame or guilt, purified”. It is linked to “Hekátē (Ἑκάτη)”, an ancient goddess most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy and sorcery. All names linked to this root are popular in historically Christian countries. As Catherine, it was the name of one of the first Christian Saints, Catherine of Alexandria, a Christian saint, and the virgin who was martyred in the early 4th century at the hands of the pagan emperor Maxentius.
