Katz is the name frequently adopted by German Cohen Jews as it's effectively an acronym of the Hebrew for 'Righteous Priest' (Cohen Tzedek).

FWIW, I did do a forum search for her name before posting and got nothing, and I wasn't going to scroll through the entire thread, so...

I've also just tried a search using your username in the "By user" field, and setting the message age to 1 day in order to filter out my post, and it can't find anything at all.
