Jennifer,
I absolutely love your website! I was watching Dr. Who the other day and one of the characters names was Cathica. I can’t find any information on the n
ame – if it is even a name used before or if it was made up for Dr Who. Do you know anything about this name?

Thanks and keep up the amazing baby name good work!
Tiffany

Dear Tiffany,

The name Cathica seems to have been created for the TV series. It is the perfect Sci-Fi name, as defined by my Character Naming Tips! It is easy to spell, easy to pronounce and is a combination of two recognizable, traditional names: Cathy and Jessica.

The character’s full name is Cathica Santini Khadeni.

Thank you for the addition! I have added Cathica to our database.

Sincerely,
Jennifer
