Katherina as a Jewish First Name in Russia #general

Meron Lavie

I had a gg-grandmother named Katherina, >from Russia or Podolia I believe. I know
that she was orthodox.

It was always my understanding that Katherina was not a name used by Jews.

Has anyone ever run into this name before for a woman in 19th century Russia?
