Different name! Really like it.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the book by Robert Louis Stevenson. The book is named after the character, Catriona MacGregor Drummond, who eventually marries the main character, David Balfour.

This is my name and personally I'm not too fond of it, but I'm used to it now. I mostly don't like it because people call me really weird things like CATRONIA or KATIE or CATRON. I can deal with cat-tree-o-na as, but the other names are ridiculous. Other than that I found my name quite sophisticated.

I enjoy this spelling and sound as an alternative to the English Catherine. I prefer the "c" variants to the "K" names. Catrine is close, but possibly too close to Katrina.

This is my name but until recently I've never been fond of it. My whole life is full of teachers reading the register and calling me Cat-ri-o-na which drives me nuts. If people learnt how to pronounce it properly I would be totally fine with it. If you give this name to a kid, make sure you live in a place where people know that it isn't supposed to sound like you have a cat stuck up a tree.

Before the modernisation of their alphabet, and yes they DID do this, another spelling was Catroina and pronounced basically the same--depending on Scotland or Ireland.

This is a beautiful name, and I prefer this spelling and find it more appealing than its variant "Katherine." Strong, unique, and (as I said) just beautiful.
Gorgeous name.

This is my middle name. I'm Scottish and have only ever met 2 other Catriona's, both of whom are now in their 20s. My name is Mhairi Catriona which flows right off your tongue (providing you can say both names!) and I love the fact they are both Scottish.

This Katherine variant allegedly became popularized after the Crusaders returned with tales of the legendary (and possibly mythical) saint named Catherine of Alexandria.

This is such a beautiful spelling of the name, I love it. Pronounced kah-TREE-na or ka-TREE-oh-na, either way I'm blown away by this gorgeous name.
