Kathleen is a given name, used in English and Irish-language communities. Sometimes spelled Cathleen, it is an Anglicized form of Caitlín, the Irish form of Cateline, which was the Old French form of Catherine.[1][2] It ultimately derives from the Greek name Aikaterine, the meaning of which is highly debated (see Katherine).
