Katsuta's given name, Rina, means "village" (里; ri) combined with a phonetic character (奈; na). It was chosen because the stroke count was a sign of good luck.[5]

Here is a list of nicknames that was used to refer to Katsuta Rina:

  • Rinapuu (りなぷ~): Official nickname, given her since joining Hello Pro Egg.
  • Puurina (ぷーりな): Nickname for Katsuta Rina, compounded of Puu (PuPu her pet dog) and rina (Katsuta Rina).
  • Bakuwara (ばくわら): A wota-originated nickname for Katsuta Rina of S/mileage, originally a Japanese internet slang for ROFL. Since Katsuta frequently used the term in her blog posts just like ordinary schoolgirls of her generation would do, wotas started to use this nickname to describe her quality of being commonplace and ordinary.[citation needed]
