"I'll bet the "Katherine" part comes from her delusion of being guided by Catherine czarina of Russia"

I've suspected as much since I first learned about Zerby's name change. I've brought it up with a couple people who used to live with Zerby in the past, and while they'd never heard an official word on it, they too thought without a doubt that was the reasoning behind it.
