The name has an Irish origin and means "pure". Caitlin was originally an Irish Gaelic form of Catherine. The original pronunciation in Gaelic was similar to Kathleen and sometimes more like /koyt-hleen/ or /Cotch-LEEN/ but in the later 20th century the pronunciation of "Kate-lynn" was commonly used in English speaking countries, and led to the numerous respellings. According to a name etymology website Katherine (from which Caitlin ultimately derives)could also be derived from Hecate, a Greek goddess originally a goddess of the wilderness and childbirth .
