    Arlene is an Irish name, and the Irish version of Catherine is spelled Kathryn, so maybe if you do that, her nn can be Katy or Kate. For the best friend, maybe Melinda or Mariah. I say for the ex, maybe Drake, and for the boyfriend, Alexander nn Alex.

    No. It isn't. The Irish version of Catherine is Caitlin (koit-leen).

    I would never know how to pronounce either of those, personally.

    Josephine? Anastasia? I don't know any Irish names, sorry. These are just random names I think of that appear (to me) to fit your criteria.
