"I absolutely love my name (Catrina) and how it is spelled. I love being different. I love how it is spelt with a C and not with a K. I have only met one person with the Catrina and she lived in Colorado, I live in Florida." May. 3, 2010:
"My name is Catrina and I love it. I have never met anyone with my name. I do get my name misspelled quite a bit. Everyone wants to spell it with a "K". I have no idea why??? Even when I tell them "C" majority of the time they still write "K". Bugs me to no end. I don't usually have people pronounce it wrong.
I go by Cat at times. Never liked "Trina"." Feb. 22, 2009:
"I like this name because its my name and where i live i havent heard of any other people thats called catrina only people called katrina. the bad thing is that everyone spells my name as Katrina" Nov. 8, 2006:
"My name is Catrina! I used to hate it when i was in elementary school cuz you could never find any pencils with your name on them. My sisters had names like Mary, stacy,and Ashley so I always felt different. Now that I'm in high school I love it. When someone mentions catrina, i'm the only one in my town with that name so everyone knows that its me. I love being different! And as far as the pencils go, they have there where you can make your own name, so I don't sweat it. Most people spell my name with a K but it's aight, everyone still knows who I am and I've even adopted the nickname CAT......Thanks Dad for not letting mom name me something "normal"" Aug. 1, 2006:

"Hi, my name is Caitrưona (correct gaelic spelling ;)) and I love it, especially the spelling. My Mum just loved the name and wanted it spelt the Irish way. It does annoy me when people spell it incorrectly but hey most people hate that! Hate Cat with a passion. Most of my friend call me trina. What can I say fab name!!!" Jan. 15, 2009:
""My name is Catriona spelt the proper gaelic way. No-one ever spells it right or pronounces it right. It is in my case pronounced Catr-ree-u-na I was named after the Robert Louis Stevenson book 'Catriona'. I have decided to go by cat or I get Cat-ree-oh-na or Katrina" Aug. 15, 2008:
"My name is Catrina and I agree with some of the comments above...growing up I couldnt ever have anything with my name on it unless it was "specially made"...so that kinda stunk. Also, When I meet people I usually have to say my name more than once since it has 3 syllables I think it may be kinda hard for people to understand me! But, other than that its a good name!!!"
