This Katherine variation, used through Ireland and Scotland, is pronounced as Katrina -- kat-tree-na. The name became popular after the Crusaders brought home stories about the colorful fourth century martyr, Catherine of Alexandria. Its later popularity increased following the success of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1893 Catriona, the sequel to Kidnapped.
