LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
HEKÁTĒ > KÁTHAROS > AIKATERī́Nē
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
HEKÁTĒ (Ἑκάτη) KÁTHAROS (καθαρός) AIKATERī́Nē ‎(Αἰκατερῑ́νη)
MEANING:
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 virgin who was martyred in the early 4th century at the hands of the pagan emperor Maxentius.
