The Hunger Games

Does Cato have a last name in The Hunger Games?

He was not given an official last name in either the books nor the movies. But, on his "Citizens of Panem Registration Form" it says his name is "Cato Hadley". However, I cannot assure the credibility of this, as it could easily be fan art. There are some official Panem IDs, however, in which characters such as Glimmer, for example, whose last names are not stated in the books nor movies, are only given a first name and not a last name. Technically, since his name is not stated in the books nor movies, he does not have a last name. In the fandom world, his name may be "Cato Hadley", but in Suzanne Collins' world, his name is "Cato".

The Hunger Games started after District 13 (leading the other districts) rebelled against the Capitol. The Capitol defeated 12 districts, and the 13 was destroyed.

What do Katniss' outfits symbolize?

She is often known as "the girl who was on fire" because her stylist, Cinna, dressed her in what was said to be a gown that was on fire, during the time where tributes were being introduced to the public for the 74th Hunger Games in the first book, The Hunger Games. Many of her outfits symbolize fire, as that is what Cinna thought represented her district best, instead of a mining suit or something along those lines.

Another of Katniss's outfits throughout the series was her wedding gown, which she wore to the opening of the 75th Hunger Games in the second Hunger Games book, Catching Fire.Unknown to her, her brilliant stylist Cinna had designed it to turn into a Mockingjay dress when she twirled. Both the audience and Katniss are pleasantly surprised and awed by the extravagant display, but the Capital gets revenge eventually. Katniss, by becoming the "Mockingjay", also became the symbol of an upcoming rebellion.
