Is That Really A Middle Name?

A relative told me that my ancestor was named Trientje Katherine Behrens. It turned out that Katherine was not really her middle name–instead it was the anglicization of her first name, Trientje.

If anything, in this case it was an alternate first name.

    I tried to use google translate but I must be doing something wrong? May I ask what language the name originated from ? Trientje?
