Katie is a girl's name of British origin, derived from the name Katherine, which means "pure". It originated as a nickname before becoming a name in its own right. The name has Greek roots, with the meaning “pure”. Katie is a diminutive form of Kate, which is the shortened form of Katherine. The name Katherine has Greek origins, and its etymology is debatable. It could stem from the Greek name Hekaterine, meaning 'each of the two'. Another possibility is its connection to Greek mythology’s goddess Hecate, who is often associated with childbirth, the underworld, and witchcraft.
