Personal experiences with the name Catalina: | Edit

Catalina is my name. I hated it every year up until 9th grade and realized how beautiful my name is. I went by Cat my whole life , but from then on went my Catalina. It's such a pretty name and I'm blessed to have it passed down to me. I never thought I'd keep the tradition, but I definitely will.

I completely agree with the comment above it describes me. I have hated it until 9th grade. My mom is also named Catalina. As it's translated to pure I definitely believe so. I love the way it sounds
