Latinized form of the Greek Κασταλία (Kastalia), which is of uncertain origin, possibly related to Greek καθαρός (katharos) meaning "clean, spotless, pure" or κασσύω (kassuô) "to stitch". This was the name of a nymph of the prophetic springs of the Delphic oracle on Mount Parnassos. She may be the same as the nymph Κασσωτίς (Kassôtis) (see Cassotis).
