Hi Karina, from what I could find on the web, the name "Karina" is of Russian origin (meaning pure). It is linked to the name "Karen" of Greek origin, also meaning pure.

Now, the name "Catherine" (of Greek origin, again), also means pure. One can see how Catherine and Karina are similar.

The nearest Irish translation to this, I think, would be "Caitlínn" (Kawch - leen). In the Engilsh speaking areas of Ireland (i.e, most of the country), this is known as Kathleen.

Hope this helps.
