With one smile from baby Katara, everything on your mind might just feel like a drop in the ocean. A feminine name, Katara is believed to derive from the Arabic word qatra, meaning “droplet,” so maybe your little one’s happy place will be in the water! Katara could also be related to the Greek name Katherine, meaning “clean,” “clear,” or “pure,” a sign that bath time might be your Katara’s favorite part of their daily routine. The creators of the animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender were also inspired by this name’s aqua-related links, as Katara is one of the main character’s names. In the series, Katara is a master waterbender, or someone who can control water in all its forms. While turning things into ice mightn’t be in baby Katara’s list of skills, their love of the ocean and water can be their superpower.
