What do you guys think of the name Catalina? I've love Carolina (pronounced like care oh LEEN uh), but nobody would pronounce it that way where I live, so I definitely couldn't ever use it as a fn... :-(.
Catalina seems pretty similar, but people would probably be able to pronounce it :-). I also still get the nickname Lina (LEEN uh), which I LOVE!
So, WDYT? Also, what are some good middle names for Catalina??
I also love the name Catalina by itself, but it reminds me of the salad dressing...don't know if that association would ruin it for you (you'd associate it more with your LO than anything else in the long run). A "word" short name afterwards would be cute, I think, like Rune or Belle.
It reminds me of those old school flying boats from the olden days! I agree it should have a short middle name
Catalina Skye (running with a flying theme lol)
Names that also end in Lina
Alina (so pretty and simple!)
I like it!
I find it very feminine and sophisticated. I also agree that a shorter middle name would be best - one or two syllables...
Thanks guys! What does everyone think of Catalina Arbor??
No, because it's too similar to Catalina Harbor. Just use Rowan or something if you want a tree name.
Catalina is Spanish for Catherine, so why not continue the theme?
i was thinking that catalina is good name to name my little girl when i grow up. i nickname for catalina ( pronouncing it like cAt a LEEN a) whould be cat . i think my child whould like this nickname and whould be happy . its odd and i like being diffrent and want to show my children not to be afraid to be diffrent :)
Am I the only one thinking "f*****g Catalina wine mixer"? (Stepbrothers)
That being said, it's a beautiful name, but I much prefer Carolina.
My name is Catalina and my MN is Rosalie. I had always wanted to be a Catalina Adeline, a Catalina Grace, or a Catalina Skye.
