Katrė is actually a short form of Kotryna and its variants (such as Katryna), in the same way as (for example) Viltė is a short form of Viltautė (both are in the main database). If Katrė had been a diminutive, it would have contained one of the numerous Lithuanian feminine diminutive suffixes, such as -utė, -ėlė and -ytė.
