Untitled[edit]

Is the street named after a specific Saint Catherine, and if so, does anyone know which one? —Charles P. (Mirv) 13:59, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

never mind, I see even the Commission de toponymie [dead link] doesn't know exactly where the name originates. —Charles P.  (Mirv) 15:24, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

I'd just like to add that I also came to this page to find out who Saint-Catherine Street was named after. All that follows is speculation. The most prominent Saint Catherine is Catherine of Alexandria, an important 4th C martyr and protector. Kateri Tekakwitha is our own saint, also known as Lily of the Mohawks, but the street may precede her life. (?) I also remember hearing a rumour (surely apocryphal) when I was younger that Saint-Catherine was named for the mistress of an important official, who added "Saint" to make the name acceptable. If I make any headway on this question I will add material. -David D'Andrea — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.127.238.56 (talk) 21:38, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
