Katie Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Feminine; USAGE: English; PRONOUNCED: KAY-tee. Diminutive of KATE. Origin English: Pure, innocent; a familiar form of Catherine, Katherine, and their spelling variants that can stand as an independent name as well. The name Katie originated as a pet form of the name Katherine or Kathleen. Katherine is the English form of the more typically French name Catherine, which was borne by a popular Christian saint martyred in Alexandria, Egypt in the 4th century, and a favorite in medieval times when the popularity of the name grew. The etymology of Katherine is debated, but she probably shares her roots with the name Hecate, a Greek goddess of the wilderness, childbirth, and crossroads.
Katie is a form of the name Kate and is generally pronounced like “KAY tee”. — This name derives from the Ancient Greek name Aikaterine, which in turn derives from the word katharos, meaning “clean, clear, pure”. In turn, the name means “pure, clear of dirt, clean of shame or guilt, purified”. It is linked to “Hekate”, 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.
