So cus I was curious… I googled the meanings for the names… I blame
for me going down this little rabbit hole of thoughts…
Katerina and Kathryn or Kate have the same meaning
Agnes is interesting and yes I gave us all of Tom’s supposed names 🤷🏼♀️
Let’s continue… Katarina related characters
Dominic - of the lord
Dom - lord
Lena - torch
Virginia - "pure virgin maid"
Constantin - constant, steadfast
Alexander - defender of men
Ilya - "the power of God"
Tatiana - fairy queen
I doubt the writers took this into consideration for most of the characters. But the meaning of "Raymond" is an interesting coincidence, I must admit. With "Elizabeth", regarding to EK, it's the opposite.
But that’s where is it really the writers or the initial creator who might have had this thought out. These are key characters to the story so they could’ve been in the “bible” of the story created by JB. He might have looked into this.
