In addition to Wilde, Mary Stewart used it in her Merlin series (The Crystal Cave, etc.) As Bill D says, that mind like a lint trap holds onto the darnedest things. :)

A catamite was the younger partner in a pederastic relationship between two males in the ancient world, especially Greece. The word, a later label, is derived from the Latin catamitus, itself borrowed from the Etruscan catmite, a corruption of the Greek Ganymedes, the boy who was seduced by Zeus and became his lover and cupbearer in Greek mythology.

Sentence: "Q: Why do men fall in love? A; Hell, I don't know, but a catamite."

A catastrophe! -- the catamite with the catapult catalogue was eaten by a catamount after whipping it with a cat-o-ning-tails!

(How's that, Seamus? Or do I have to use the words in order?)

I guess that catamites & morphodites were both named by people too bashful to enunciate clearly.

One morning in my home town of Catamount Colorado, I said to Carlo my catamite, "Do you know sometimes I think my life is just a catalogue of catastrophies" Carlo just lay there like he was in a catatonic trance, showing no sign of having heard a word I'd said. So I grabbed the cat-o'-nine-tails from the cuphook on by the cupboard, and cracked loudly in the air above him. Well he catapulted out of that bed like a cat off hot bricks, he rolled like a catherine wheel on the bed side rug upsetting the vase of catnip on the bedside table, and headed for the bathroom like a scalded cat.
But I knew he wanted me to catch him.......................
