"Katniss’s first name comes from a plant called sagittaria or arrowhead, which is a tuber plant usually found in water. The root of this plant can be eaten, as Katniss does in the book.

The plant also shares its name with a constellation in the Zodiac called Sagittarius, or "The Archer", which may also reference Katniss’s skills in archery.
