Katherine is the 61st most popular female first name in the United States; frequency is 0.313%; percentile is 33.489

Katherine - From the Greek name Αικατερινη (Aikaterine).

The Romans associated it with Greek καθαρος (katharos) "pure" and changed their spelling from Katerina to Katharina to reflect this. The name belonged to a 4th-century saint and martyr from Alexandria who was tortured on the famous Catherine wheel. Another saint by this name was Catherine of Siena, a 14th-century mystic.
