Uh.... what do you think of Aikatarine? Its greek for Kathryn meaning pure. Pronounced Ay-kat-ah-ree-nee.

I would probably go for Athena but here are other Greek names:

I like them all but Athen a wins in a huge way. My favorite Greek name is Lydia. GL!!

Agreeing with the last post- My little sister’s name is Tanis, and she gets a lot of compliments on it.

I voted for Athena, although I think Xanthe is pretty. I love Tanis also :)

I love Athena! I like the idea of Aikatarine, but I don’t think anyone in this country would say it as it should sound. I think it would be a beautiful name IN Greece, but I don’t think it would quite work in America. I do know an Athena in the states, and I think that would work much better.

I know a Persephone. She gets some compliments, some weird looks and a lot of "Stephanie???" She goes by Seph or Sephie. I agree that the name Aikatarine would get murdered by English speaking people. GL!!
