How to retrieve categories list using fulltext search instead of category code?

I am not able to retrieve categories list for a full text search (for ex: search text "Kitchen" should display all categories with Kitchen word in the category name) I am able to retrieve categories using category code but not with text search.

     final CategorySearchEvaluator categorySearch = new CategorySearchEvaluator(categoryCode, searchQuery, page, showMode,
                 sortCode, categoryPage);
         ProductCategorySearchPageData<SearchStateData, ProductData, CategoryData> searchPageData = null;
             searchPageData = categorySearch.getSearchPageData();
         catch (final ConversionException e) // NOSONAR
             searchPageData = createEmptySearchResult(categoryCode);

    Defaultly its subCategories, You can define your own attribute allCategories and add the populator as follow.

    public class MyProductCategorySearchPagePopulator implements Populator, ProductCategorySearchPageData> {

      * (non-Javadoc)
      * @see de.hybris.platform.converters.Populator#populate(ProductCategorySearchPageData<QUERY, RESULT, SCAT,
      * ProductCategorySearchPageData<STATE, ITEM, CATEGORY>)
     public void populate(final ProductCategorySearchPageData<QUERY, RESULT, SCAT> source,
             final ProductCategorySearchPageData<STATE, ITEM, CATEGORY> target) throws ConversionException
         if (source.getAllCategories() != null)
