Etymology of the name KATERINA.
Meaning of the baby name KATERINA.

  

KATERINA.  A variant form of Greek Kathariné (q.v.), meaning "pure."  Usage:  Bohemia, Germany, Russia (Катерина), Ukraine (Катерина). (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Also see Katarina, and Kateryna.

... Every one knows (who knows anything about the great and free city of Hamburg) that the lowest classes of society within its ramparts are sadly to be pitied.  The rich are very great people there, as they are everywhere else, and the poor are very small indeed.  They are diminutive alike in stature and importance, so that Katerina Bürger, though barely three feet high, was by no means remarkable among her own particular class; and no one in it would ever have dreamed of such a thing as calling her a dwarf... (Bentley's Miscellany, "Katerina, the Dwarf of Jungfernstieg," v.6, 1839)
