Yes, I think you are correct that the comments about Latrina are inappropriate--and also incorrect. It is highly unlikely that Latrina was created because someone was deliberately altering the word "latrine". It's just the opposite -- the name was created by people who were blending the prefix La- with Trina and who were NOT familiar with the word "latrine". And it certainly has nothing to do with Hurricane Katrina, as Latrina, like most La- prefix names, was most common for girls born in the 1970s and 1980s, way before that event.
