  • "for the atheist in the negative comment below, he should be happy he is not called Muhammed. Or Islam. Nevertheless, Christian is a beautiful name." Oct. 21, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "I proudly named my baby boy Christian a month ago. It is a strong name for a gentleman and sounds bright. I like the comment below that stated her friends named Christian are all caring individuals. As for religion, I want him to be blessed entering the world and will be baptized. I am a freethinker and have Christian values. And if he chooses to be a freethinker, I will be ok with that as long as he has been blessed. The name means "chosen one" and my husband and I tried to get pregnant for so long and so we feel it suits him since he was the chosen one to be born. Till this day we couldn't this cute bundle of joy was born." Sep. 21, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Christian. I am a person. Not a religion. Don't do your child the disservice of choosing not only their name but religion for them in both a social and legal sense. This, if it is like mine, will make your kid resent that they are to constantly be associated with god, bible, and church. When I say you choose, the power of a name is significant. By bestowing this title on them, they will always be associated with it, and will always themselves associate with it. I dont use this name because it annoys me greatly for this reason."

  • "This is my name, and I both like it and hate it. Hatred first: I don't think it's such a great name to give a kid, because he may change religions, or have no religion at all. Secondly, despite the fact that "Christian" is easily recognizable as a religion, people are incredibly annoying about pronunciation. There were many'a first days at school where the teacher would say "Christina" or "Kristen" at roll-call. Also, it's one of those names most people like to shorten to "Chris," which is a name I never want to be called, due to its common nature. One more thing: There are certain fools who think it is a girls name, which it is most definitely NOT. Please, don't name any girl "Christian." There is a perfectly good female version known as "CHRISTINA." On the good side, Christian is a pretty signature name. Very easy to make a whimsical full name with Christian at the beginning. Also, if you like never-ending lame jokes and want to be asked "Are you a Christian, Christian?" over and over, then this name is for YOU! Well, your child.." Nov. 15, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "Been my name for 35 years-- glad to see it becoming more popular. I use to have fun telling people that I was Jewish. Its never been mispronounced, but some people will assume my nickname is Chris - to which I usually correct them. Surprised by how many people need help spelling it-although I've never seen it mispelled." Aug. 17, 2005: Report as inappropriate
