Meaning of my name




What’s the meaning of my name? I didn’t know until today, but generally, I have viewed my name as a little unexciting, just because the name Kate is so common. (Hence I’ve given my daughters what I think are interesting and different names).

In researching this I found on a name website where it looks at the meaning and history of names that others associate the name Kate with: ‘Classic, natural, wholesome, strong, refined, simple and nerdy’.

I actually like many of these words and would be happy to have them describe me, but whether they do is another matter. The main meaning that come up frequently is that Kate means ‘pure.’

Well I think my intentions and messages from the heart are pure, so perhaps there’s something to be said for it…! 🤷‍♀️
