Meaning and originality:
Catalina is the Spanish counterpart of Catherine. The etymology of Catherine is still unknown but the most possible explanation for it is that it has been derived from the Greek Hekaterine which stems from “hekateros”. This explanation ultimately makes it possible to associate Catalina to the Greek titan goddess Hecate. Greek legends say that Titans were overthrown by the Olympian gods, but Zeus appreciated Hecate so much that she let her have her magical powers over humanity. It is also possible that the Greek Hecate might be connected to the Egyptian goddess of childbirth (Heqet).
Catherine is favored among the French, Katherine is favored among the English speakers and Catalina is favored among the Spanish speakers and is used in South American countries such as Brazil and Argentina.
