White feathers, sweet smiles, and candlelit rooms remind us of the purity of the girl's name, Katinka. Derived from the Greek adjective καθαρός (katharos), Katinka comes from the Christan-inspired Catherine, meaning "pure." Katinka may appear as an adorable nickname for Katerina and Ekaterina, popular names in Russia and other Eastern European countries. Diving into the crystal, cleansing waters, we will find Katinka Hosszú, a Hungarian professional swimmer who is also a three-time Olympic champion and a nine-time long-course champion. Whether your little one leads a virtuous lifestyle or takes to the waves like her athletic fellow Katinka, they will approach everything with a good and honest heart.
