Possible Origin of My First Name

One of my friends suggested that the origin of my first name is Catiline, a Roman politician from the 1st century BC.

Catiline

While I don’t really know whether this is right, it is definitely more convincing than the other variants I’ve heard so far. The most common but least convincing one is that Cătălin is possibly the Romanian version of Katherine. I say least convincing since Ecaterin (Ecaterina) is the Romanian version of Katherine.
