About Katie-leighGo back to names list
Double barrel names can be made up of any two names. Very often the separate meanings of the two root names do not make sense when combined together, so we shall look at them separately. Katie came about as a pet form of the name Catherine which is from the Greek word ‘katharos’ the meaning being ‘Pure’. Katie is now used as a name in its own right. Leigh is of Old English origin, from an Old English surname meaning ‘Clearing in Woods’. The two are favourite names in Britain.
