I have this name, and I've never met anyone with the same name, nevermind the same spelling. There are a lot of different ways to spell it, but I'm rather biased to this way ("Caterina"). I personally love it a lot as a name--it always draws attention and remarks, sounds fairly melodic, and is obviously very unique. Don't give it as a name, however, if the idea of people mispronouncing it bothers you; in my case, only a very few people have pronounced it correctly the first time.

Caterina Medici, aka Catherine de Medici, is a famous bearer of this name. She was the daughter of Lorenzo Medici and Madeleine de la Toure d'Auverne, originally named Caterina Maria Romola di Lorenzo de Medici. When she went to marry Henry II of France, then only Dauphin, at the age of fourteen, "Caterina" was Gallicized to "Catherine", and she was known for the rest of her life as Catherine de Medicis. When Henry died in 1559, and Catherine's three sons, Francis, Charles, and Henry, each took the throne in turn, in all three cases, it was Catherine who held the real power.

The other reason I love this name is it has no popularity which means if I name my kid this, then no one else will have it! I LOVE that.

Just because a name has never been on the top 1000 doesn't mean no one has it. Plenty of people are given names that have never been on the top 1000. Sure, it's more rare, but your child won't be the only person with the name.

Geez people, really? I'm sure that commenter from 2009 didn't mean that no on else on earth would have the name Caterina. I think she or he meant that a Caterina would most likely be the only Caterina in her classes, sports teams, and circle of friends. This is unlike Sophia or Isabella or Emma.
