Catherine Name Meaning & History
Catherine is a Feminine name used in French and English. PRONOUNCED: KA-TU-REEN (French), KA-TREEN (French), KATH-a-rin (English), KATH-rin (English). French form of KATHERINE, and also a common English variant. — A traditional female name having variations in many languages and used since the third century A.D., Catherine is a timeless name that has been the moniker for saints and royalty alike. Its twin sister “Katherine” has been more popular in recent years, but Catherine with a C has a more vintage and romantic feel to it. — 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 a virgin who was martyred in the early 4th century at the hands of the pagan emperor Maxentius.
