Name Root:
HEKÁTĒ > KÁTHAROS > Aikaterī́nē
Meaning:*
This name comes from the ancient Greek “Aikaterī́nē (Αἰκατερῑ́νη),” which comes from “katharós (καθαρός),” meaning “clean, clear, pure.” In turn, the name means “pure, clear of dirt, clean of shame or guilt, purified.” The name is linked to “Hekátē (Ἑκάτη),” an ancient goddess who is most often shown with two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. Hekate is associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. All the names related to this root are popular in historically Christian countries; in fact, Catherine was the name of one of the first Christian saints. According to tradition, Saint Catherine of Alexandria is a Christian saint and virgin who was martyred in the early 4th-century at the pagan emperor Maxentius’s hands.
