Meaning & History
Derived from either the Greek noun καρτερία (karteria) meaning "perseverance, patient endurance" or the Greek adjective καρτερός (karteros) meaning "strong, staunch, steadfast".This name was borne by at least two saints, both of whom are better known under the name Carterius, which is the latinized form of their name.
