Kateri is a girl’s name of Native American origin. A famous bearer was St. Kateri, the 17th-century daughter of a Catholic Algonquin mother and a Mohawk father. Originally named Tekakwitha, she adopted the name Kateri upon her baptism as a form of the Greek name Catherine, which means “pure.” St. Kateri’s face was scarred from illness at a young age, but on her deathbed her skin miraculously became clear. She was beatified in 1980 and canonized as a saint in 2012. With such a fascinating history, this beautiful name makes a great choice for baby.
