katarzyna

As tornado2007 said Kasia is short for katarzyna = Katharine in English and it is very often shortened in informal circumstances.

you can get all sorts of shortened names etc etc, also there are different ways of saying a name for example, Karolina, Karola, Karolinka and Kaja are all ways of saying the name (Karolina) you will often find that there is more than one way to say a name.
