This name is a version of English Catherine, meaning Pure. They both derive from Greek ‘Εκατερινη, which which is thought to have come from the Greek goddess Hecate, the goddess of spells, graveyards and tombs, demons, crossroads, and the underworld.

In early Christian times it became associated with Greek word καθαρος or katharos, which means Pure.

I like the variation Katalini, it sounds petit and innocent, which fits it’s meaning. Nicknames like Kat and Lina make it seriously useable and cultured to boot. Similar names could include Santina, Remini and Florencia.
