The origin of the name is disputed; only the Romans introduced the name from the Greek adjective καθαρός ( katharos = "pure") from, "the Pure" it carries its significance until today. The male counterpart (lat. Catharinus ) appears only in connection with a uniquely male first name (about Barthelemy-Catherine). A widely distributed of the name by the hl. Catherine of Alexandria in 3-4. Century. On the origin of the name there are several theories. Among other things, it could be the magic to a modification of the name of the Greek goddess Hecate act. Another possibility would be the modification of the Armenian word Կատար (gadar = "peak"). Furthermore, there are the Greek words εκάτερος ("both together"), ἑκατόν ("hundred"), ἑκάς ("away") and αἰκία ("mistreatment") as the source in question. - Cedric Paskett Popularity of Katherine
