Katla: baby girl name meaning and popularity

Katla

An ancient Scandinavian name, Katla is the feminine form of the male name Ketil -- which means "cauldron." If you want to delve a little deeper, it's a type of cauldron used to catch the blood of sacrificial animals. But don't worry about the slightly creepy meaning; your little Katla will be as charming as can be. Spellbinding, you might say.
