Sometimes I really get tired of Nameberry's judgmental descriptions. I'm thinking about using Katalina as an honor name for a Kathleen, hence keeping the K. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the Kardashians.

Katalina is also a name (somewhat rarely) used in Hungary.

Mera Alford Says:


Because its spelled differently than the island, its less appealing?! That's odd, considering why would you want your child's name to be referred to as the island or named after the island. My daughters name is Katalina and I much prefer it with the K!

This is such a beautiful name! I prefer the K spelling because you can get the nick name "Kat" out of it

Guest Says:


I disagree with the "Kardashian K" thing in the description. Katherine is pretty much as classic as it gets and Katalina is a variation just like Catalina is a variation of Catherine. It's legit. Unlike Kaleb.
