Katherine, Catherine, and other variations are feminine names. They are popular in Christian countries because of their derivation from the name of one of the first Christian saints, Catherine of Alexandria.

The name originated from the Greek Αἰκατερίνα or Αἰκατερίνη (Aikaterína, Aikaterínē), which is of uncertain etymology. The earliest known use of the Greek name is in reference to Saint Catherine of Alexandria. The theory that the name comes from Hecate, the name of the Greek goddess of magic, is regarded by the editors of the Oxford Dictionary of First Names as unconvincing.

In the early Christian era it came to be associated with the Greek adjective καθαρός (katharos), meaning "pure", leading to the alternative spellings Katharine and Katherine.

Catherine I (Russian: Екатери́на I Алексе́евна, tr. Yekaterina I Alekseyevna; born Polish: Marta Helena Skowrońska, later known as Marta Samuilovna Skavronskaya)(1684 –1727) was the second wife of Peter the Great and Empress of Russia from 1725 until her death. She was originally named Marta Helena Skowrońska. Marta was the daughter of Samuel Skowroński (later spelt Samuil Skavronsky), a Roman Catholic peasant from the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth born to Minsker parents, who in 1680 married Dorothea Hahn at Jakobstadt. Her mother is named in at least one source as Elizabeth Moritz, the daughter of a Baltic German woman and there is debate as to whether Moritz's father was a Swedish officer. Some biographies state that Marta's father was a gravedigger and handyman, while others speculate that he was a runaway landless serf. In any case, in 1703, while visiting Menshikov at his home, Peter met Marta. In 1704, she was well established in the Tsar's household as his mistress, and gave birth to a son, Peter In 1705 she converted to Orthodoxy and took the new name of Catherine Alexeyevna (Yekaterina Alexeyevna). Though no record exists, Catherine and Peter are described as having married secretly between 23 October and 1 December 1707 in Saint Petersburg. They had twelve children, two of whom survived into adulthood, Anna (born 1708) and Yelizaveta (born 1709). In 1724 Catherine was officially crowned and named co-ruler and as Empress regnant. Peter died ( 1725) without naming a successor. Catherine represented the interests of the "new men", commoners who had been brought to positions of great power by Peter based on competence. A change of government was likely to favor the entrenched aristocrats. For that reason during a meeting of a council to decide on a successor, a coup was arranged by Menshikov and others in which the guards regiments with whom Catherine was very popular proclaimed her the ruler of Russia, giving her the title of Empress. Catherine was the first woman to rule Imperial Russia
Catherine Petrovna (1706– 1708) daughter of Peter the Great and Catherine I.

Catherine II (born Sophie of Anhalt-Zerbst) ( 1729 –1796), most commonly known as Catherine the Great, was Empress of Russia from 1762 until 1796—the country's longest-ruling female leader. She came to power following a coup d'état that she organised—resulting in her husband, Peter III, being overthrown. A daughter of Princess Johanna of Holstein Gottorp and Christian August, Prince of Anhalt-Zerbst. In 1745 in Saint Petersburg. Sophie had turned 16 she married Peter, known then as Peter von Holstein-Gottorp. In 1744 she had conversed to Eastern Orthodoxy and they received Princess Sophie as a member with the new name Catherine (Yekaterina or Ekaterina) and the (artificial) patronymic Алексеевна (Alekseyevna, daughter of Aleksey). Catherine lost her virginity to Sergei Saltykov as her marriage to Peter had not been consummated. In 1761/1762 Peter succeeded to the Russian throne as Emperor Peter III, and Catherine became empress consort. In 1762, after six months on the throne, Peter was disposed through a coup by Catherine. Although Catherine did not descend from the Romanov dynasty, her ancestors included members of the Rurik dynasty, which preceded the Romanovs. She succeeded her husband as empress regnant, following the precedent established when Catherine I succeeded her husband Peter the Great in 1725.  It is has been assumed Catherine had about 4 children, but some are considered unlikely and /or are not acknowledged. Paul (1754-1801), the heir; Anna (1757-1759), possibly the offspring of Catherine and Stanisław Poniatowski, she was named by Empress Elizabeth after her deceased sister, against Catherine’s wishes; Alexei Grigorievich Bobrinsky Count Bobrinsky, born at the Winter Palace, he was brought up at Bobriki; his father was Grigory Grigoryevich Orlov; Elizabeth Grigorieva Temkina,  Born many years after the death of Catherine's husband, brought up in the Samoilov household, and never acknowledged by Catherine, it has been suggested that Temkina was the illegitimate child of Catherine and Potemkin, but this is now regarded as unlikely.

Katharine, Duchess of Kent (born Katharine Lucy Mary Worsley)(1933) is a member of the British royal family. Her husband, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, is a first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. The only daughter and fourth child of Sir William Arthington Worsley, 4th Baronet, and his wife, Joyce Morgan Brunner. Her mother was the daughter of Sir John Brunner, 2nd Baronet, and granddaughter of Sir John Brunner, 1st Baronet, the founder of Brunner Mond, which later became ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries).  In 1961 she married   Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.  The Duchess of Kent was received into the Catholic Church in 1994. Although the Act of Settlement 1701 means a member of the royal family marrying a Catholic relinquishes their right of succession to the British throne, the Act does not include marriage to an Anglican who subsequently becomes a Catholic. Therefore, the Duke of Kent did not lose his place in the line of succession to the British throne. Since then the couple's younger son, Lord Nicholas, their grandson Lord Downpatrick, and their granddaughter Lady Marina have also become Catholics.  The couple have three children: George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews (1962); Lady Helen Taylor (1964); and Lord Nicholas Windsor (1970).

Princess Katherine of Greece and Denmark (Greek: Αικατερίνη)(1913 –2007), styled in the UK as Lady Katherine Brandram from 1947 till her death, was the third daughter and youngest child of King Constantine I of Greece and Sophia of Prussia. In 1947 she married Major Richard Campbell Brandram MC (1911 –1994), an officer in the British Royal Artillery. On 25 August 1947, King George VI granted her the rank and title of a duke's daughter and she became known as Lady Katherine Brandram. The couple had 1 son.

Katherine, Crown Princess of Yugoslavia, also named Katherine Karađorđević (Serbian: Катарина Карађорђевић; née Batis, Greek: Μπατής)( 1943), is the wife of Alexander, Crown Prince of Yugoslavia. She is one of the two daughters of Robert Batis (1916-2011) and Anna Dosti (1922-2010). In 1962, Katherine married Jack Walter Andrews (1933-2013). From that marriage she has two children, David and Alison. She and Jack Walter Andrews were divorced in 1984. In 1985 she married Alexander, Crown Prince of Yugoslavia, as his 2nd wife (he was previously married to  Princess Maria da Gloria of Orléans-Braganza from 1972 till 1985).

They had eight daughters and one son. In the mid-1890s, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria began visiting Isabella and Friedrich's home. At first, it was assumed that he was there to court one of their many daughters. Eventually, it was discovered that in fact he was courting Countess Sophie Chotek, a lady-in-waiting to Archduchess Isabella. Isabella became infuriated that Franz Ferdinand had not singled out one of her eight daughters as his bride and future empress; as a result she engaged in a crusade to thwart the marriage of Franz Ferdinand and Sophie. Sophie was dismissed from service, thus beginning an ongoing conflict between Friedrich and Franz Ferdinand, who married Sophie in 1900. The marriage was morganatic; Sophie was subjected to the indignities of a much lower rank at court than that of her husband, and none of their children could succeed to their father's dynastic honours—all chiefly as a result of Isabella's machinations. A decade later, Isabella created a similar furore when her nephew, Karl, 13th Prince von Croÿ, sought to marry Nancy Leishman, the charming young daughter of John George Alexander Leishman, United States Ambassador to Germany, the former president of Carnegie Steel. The Archduchess felt that Nancy, being an American and a commoner, was not an appropriate spouse for a prince of Croÿ. Karl and Nancy were wed, nonetheless; today their grandson is the present Duke of Croÿ

Archduchess Isabella Maria Theresia Christine Eugenie of Austria-Teschen ( 1888 – 1973) was the 7th daughter of Archduke Friedrich, Duke of Teschen and his wife, Princess Isabella of Croÿ. Isabella was notable for her brief marriage to Prince Georg of Bavaria. Their separation and subsequent annulment were widely reported in newspapers. In 1912, Isabella married her distant cousin Prince Georg of Bavaria. He was the elder son of Prince Leopold of Bavaria and his wife Archduchess Gisela of Austria. The wedding took place at the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, and was attended by many important figures, including Franz Joseph I of Austria, Prince Georg's maternal grandfather. It is believed that Isabella had second thoughts even before the marriage, but was forced to go through with the plans regardless. The couple honeymooned in Wales, Paris, and Algiers but separated before they returned to Bavaria. Sources state that they quarreled all through the honeymoon and became irreconcilable. On 17 January 1913, the union was officially dissolved by the Royal Bavarian Supreme Court. Despite the Lord Chamberlain's previous declaration to the contrary, it was annulled by the Holy See on the grounds of non-consummation on 5 March of that same year. Georg later became ordained as a Catholic priest.

Nancy is a girl's name of Hebrew, French origin. The name Nancy was originally a diminutive form of Anne or Ann. Nancy originated as a contraction of “mine Ancy,” with Ancy being a nickname for Annis, a Medieval English variation of Agnes. In the 18th century it began being used in its own right, as well as a nickname for Ann.

Nancy Witcher Langhorne Astor, Viscountess Astor, CH (1879 – 1964) was an American-born British politician who was the second female Member of Parliament (MP) but the first to take her seat, serving from 1919 to 1945. Sinn Féin's Constance Markievicz had become the first elected female MP in 1918, but refused to take her seat in line with party policy. She was the eighth of eleven children born to railroad businessman Chiswell Dabney Langhorne and his wife Nancy Witcher Keene. She was an American citizen. In 1897, when she was 18, she married her first husband socialite Robert Gould Shaw II. The marriage was unhappy. Shaw's friends said Nancy became puritanical and rigid after marriage; her friends said that Shaw was an abusive alcoholic. During their four-year marriage, they had one son, Robert Gould Shaw III (called Bobby). Nancy left Shaw numerous times during their marriage, the first during their honeymoon. In 1903, Nancy's mother died; at that time, Nancy Shaw gained a divorce and moved back to Mirador to try to run her father's household, but was unsuccessful. She moved to England at age 26 and married Waldorf Astor. He succeeded to the peerage and entered the House of Lords. The couple had 6 children.

Nancy Freeman-Mitford CBE (1904 – 1973), known as Nancy Mitford, was an English novelist, biographer and journalist. The eldest of the Mitford sisters, she was regarded as one of the "Bright Young People" on the London social scene in the years between the world wars. The Mitford family dates from the Norman era, when Sir John de Mitford held the Castle of Mitford in Northumberland. A later Sir John held several important public offices during the late 14th and early 15th centuries, and the family maintained a tradition of public service for many generations. She was the daughter of David Bertram Ogilvy Freeman-Mitford and Sydney Bowles, the elder daughter of Thomas Gibson Bowles. In 1933 she married Peter Rodd, the second son of Sir Rennell Rodd, a diplomat and politician who was ennobled that year as Baron Rennell. Mitford's initial delight in the marriage was soon tempered by money worries, Rodd's fecklessness and her dislike of his family. Mitford's marriage to Peter Rodd, which began in 1933, proved unsatisfactory to both, and they divorced in 1957 after a lengthy separation. During the Second World War she formed a liaison with a Free French officer, Gaston Palewski, who became the love of her life.

 Nancy Stewart Worthington Leeds (Princess Anastasia of Greece and Denmark) (1879-1923) She was born as May Stewart in Zanesville, Ohio, to William Charles Stewart, a wealthy merchant, and his wife, Mary Holden. As "Nonie May Stewart", in 1894 in Cleveland, she married George Ely Worthington, son of Ralph Worthington (who was a son of George Worthington, a major Cleveland industrialist). The couple had no children. It is unclear how or where, but the marriage ended on 23 March 1899 by divorce, annulment or abandonment. In 1900, May married for the second time in Cleveland: the groom was William Bateman Leeds, a wealthy businessman . This was also Leeds' second marriage, the previous one having ended in 1896. Nonie May and Leeds had one son, William Bateman Leeds, Jr., (1902) Leeds died in 1908 in Paris, France, leaving a fortune estimated at 35 million dollars and a reputation as America's "Tin King", based on his financial success in plating and marketing that metal. The wealthy, 30-year-old widow, soon to be known in Europe as "Nancy May Leeds", chose to remain in Europe, where she socialised among the aristocracy. In 1914 the engagement between Nancy May Leeds and Prince Christopher of Greece and Denmark (1888–1940) was announced. About 6 years later, in 1920, they married. The bride joined the Greek Orthodox church and took, as was usual, a new Christian name: Anastasia. Shortly after her marriage to Prince Christopher, Anastasia was diagnosed with cancer. She died three years later in 1923. In 1929, Prince Christopher married Princess Françoise of Orléans and fathered a son, Prince Michael of Greece and Denmark. Prince Christopher unfortunately died a year later.


Nancy Helen Marie Leeds (1925) daughter of William Bateman Leeds Jr. (1902 - 1971) and Princess Xenia Georgievna of Russia (1903,-1965). Xenia was 18 at the time of her marriage and William was the stepson of her maternal uncle Prince Christopher of Greece. Nancy Helen Marie Leeds married Edward Judson Wynkoop Jr. in 1945. Xenia and William Leeds divorced in 1930. A common mistake in listing this family is to identify the daughter of Nancy Helen Marie Wynkoop (née Leeds) incorrectly as being, instead, the daughter of Princess Xenia Georgievna by her second husband.

Carmen is a given name with two different origins. Its first root is Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, used as a nickname for Carmel and Carmelo (respectively), from Hebrew karmel, "God's vineyard". The second origin is from Latin carmen, which means "ode" or "poem" ("Patrium Carmen": ode to the motherland) and is also the root of the English word "charm". The name of the Roman goddess Carmenta based on this root comes from the purely Latin origin, as is the fragment of archaic Latin known as "Carmen Saliare"

He succeeded to the headship on the death of his father in 1954. In 1942, Friedrich Josias married his first cousin Countess Viktoria-Luise of Solms-Baruth (1921 – 2003).
