Catriona (pronounced similar to "Katrina") is a feminine given name in the English language. It is an Anglicisation of Caitrìona and Caitríona, which are mutual to both the Irish and Scottish Gaelic languages. Alternate spellings include Catrìona in Scottish Gaelic, and Catríona in Irish. All are Goidelic forms of the English Katherine, which is possibly derived from the Greek for "pure."
