    KATHERINE
    Gender: Feminine Usage: English Pronounced: KATH-u-rin, KATH-rin [key]
    From the Greek name Αικατερινη (Aikaterine). The etymology is debated: it could derive from the earlier Greek name ‘Εκατερινη (Hekaterine), which came from ‘εκατερος (hekateros) "each of the two"; it could derive from the name of the goddess HECATE; it could be related to Greek αικια (aikia) "torture"; or it could be from a Coptic name meaning "my consecration of your name". 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. This name was also borne by two empresses of Russia, including Catherine the Great, and by three of Henry VIII's wives.


    NOTE.. MY NAME IS NOT KATHERINE.. ITS CATHERINE.. BUT IT SAID I HAD TO LOOK AT THIS ONE.. URRRRRRGH

    ARAMINTA Gender: Feminine

    Perhaps an elaboration of AMINTA. This name was (first?) used by William Congreve in his comedy 'The Old Bachelor' (1693) and later by Sir John Vanbrugh in his comedy 'The Confederacy' (1705). This was the birth name of abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

    I've seen other definitions as 'lofty' or 'beautiful, sweet smelling flower' :)
