"When I was little I hated my name but now as an adult I love it i go by Chris most of the time I went by Christy when I was in school and that's what most of my family calls . When I first meet someone I introduce myself as Christina but I pretty much just go by chris" Jul. 13, 2016:
"I really hated my name when I was little, because I live in Czech Republic where the name is quite common (at the time I was born, it was incredibly popular and I know so many Christinas of my age), even now. I came to love the name, because it's elegant and classic, and people don't mess up the pronounciation in any language. The only thing that bothers me is that people always ask if i'm Krist?na (the classic czech spelling of the name), or Kristina (the more modern one)." Nov. 22, 2015:
"Count me among the 'annoyed at being called 'Christine'club.
My name has grown on me - and no one allowed to shorten it. Especially to Chris - man's name!" Oct. 5, 2015:

"It's my mother's first name and I'm thinking of using it as a second name for my child (if it's a girl) or Christian if it's a boy (after my grandfather). I like the fact that it can be used in many languages without issue." Oct. 14, 2012:

"My sister's name is Christina ans she hates when people say CHRISTINE, she always says "A" to finish her name. We call her Nina for short and her friends call her stina. She hates all other nicknames and only people she is close too can call her either of those. It's Christina , to everyone else" Oct. 13, 2011:
"I named my daughter Christina, and I noticed that she and her brother went through the same progress learning to say the name. It started as A'tina (which I thought was so cute) then Ris'tina finally they were both able to say Christina. We are more likely to call her Tina as a nickname. (I will call her Tina Kate)" Jun. 19, 2011:
"Christina is my name and I think its pretty. I get called Chris, Christine and Christina which sometimes gets annoying. I dont mind being called Chris but I dont understand the whole Christine/Christina thing? Its a good name though :)" Dec. 30, 2010:
"People don't often get it wrong. My name is Christina, there is a boy named Chris in my grade so the teachers don't call me by that, but my friends will. People Chris, Chrissy, Tee, Tina, Tiny. I know other people with the same name but spelled Kristina. I like my name because it is classic and cute! Adults call me Christina, no nick names except for my family calls me Chris. I don't like Chris because with my last name I sound like a man! The nicknames I like the most are Tee or Tiny, but I'm tall so it doesn't suit me good!" Dec. 29, 2010:

"My name is Christina. My family calls me Chrissy or Chris. My best friend calls me Churtina. (Chui-tin-a) I have no idea how she came up with it. I love my name because it's common, but it's uncommon.I have met other people with the name Chrisina, but none of them have been my age. People have mistaken it for Christopher, because there used to be a boy named Christopher in my grade. But overall, I have always loved my name." Mar. 20, 2009:
"My name is Christina..and I love it. It's a really classic pretty name. It's not a trendy name, which I love. I've always loved being a Christina, and love the spelling of my name too. Sometime people call me Chris, and my family calls me Ina pronounced Ena." Mar. 4, 2009:
"Although I hated my name being "Christina" at one point in my life. I guess I got use to it by now. And being the only one in my family with an English name, it was kind of irritating. My sisters usually call me "Tina" and "Tee-Tee". But when I was in high school, my sister called me "Tee-Tee" once, everyone thought she was calling a dog. It was kind of embarassing and funny." Oct. 30, 2008:
"I have this name... no one calls me it and when they attempt they call me Christine so it's pointless. I go by Chrissy and I dont' even like that. Now I'm down to Chris... it's better but still. Don't name you kid this, she most likely hate it. lol" Jun. 11, 2008:
"I love my name. Must agree I cannot stand being called Christine. My nickname is Chris which I also love over Christy or Chrissy which is reminiscent of prissy and frilly to me." May. 17, 2008:
"I love my name,Christina. It is not real popular where I live, but is common enough.
Yes, I get the "is it CH" ALL the time. Is just habit now, not irratating they ALWAYS ask first if CH not CR or K.
People call me Chrissy as a nickname." May. 7, 2008:
"I'm a Christina going to Catholic School, where all the nuns call me Christine. I have to say that it can get irritating. I'm always asked how it's spelled, and I just reply "C-H". But Christine is very common. I just say "UH" after someone says Christine to me - they're seeming to catch on now" Mar. 5, 2008:
"My name is Christina and I am "of a certain age"! I have been called "Tina" all my life, except by people who have read my name from a form. Although I think Christina is a lovely and elegant name, I can't seem to shake "Tina" which always seems to me like the name of a waitress or an exotic dancer!
People usually ask if it is spelled with a "K" or a "C" and I always reply "Ch.'!" Jan. 25, 2008:
"My name is Christina. I have gone by my full name from day one. No Chris, no Chrissy, no Christy, no Tina...just Christina. As a child I thought my name was too long (an entire 9 letters! :), however as an adult I highly appreciate my name. It reflects both the 1970's/1980's naming wave, and also my (Scottish) family ancestry. Apparently the name Christina was popular in Scotland in the 1700's/1800's!" Aug. 16, 2007:
"My name is Christina and i like it except for my high school period when Christina Aquilara was so popular i got called Xtina all the time drove me nuts so eventually adopted Nina as a nickname but i dont mind it so much anymore. its who i am!!" Aug. 6, 2007:
"My names christina and I love my name but every class i have in school someone has the name christina, and everyday my keyboarding teacher call me christine it's very annoying." Jan. 20, 2007:
"I'm a Christina and I love my name. I don't like it when people call me "Christine". It's so annoying." Nov. 29, 2006:
"My name is Christina and I have always loved my name. I think it is the most beautiful girl name there is. =)I just wish it weren't so popular. Growing up I had 8 friendsnamed Christina." Sep. 29, 2006:
"Christina is a strong-willed child who is artistic and independant. She is also competitive in a quiet way which is great for a girl these days." Aug. 10, 2006:
"My name is Christina and i love it. its such a pretty name. My friends call me Chrissy, but i get annoyed if people drop the A and end up calling me Christine." Mar. 22, 2006:
"Hey, my name is christina, in preschool day care, and kindergarten, i went by Tina, when i got to first grade i started demanding people to call me Christina, as others people fail to use the beautiful "A" in my name, and call me Christine" Feb. 9, 2006:
"I've always been complimented on how my name sounds elegant. It's nice because it can easily be shortened many ways. My nickname for my family members is Chrissie. I too get very annoyed when people call me Christine rather than Christina because it is almost like they refuse to take the time to know what my name is. At times it is an honest mistake which is understandable but when its not its very annoying. My ex's parents took years to get it across to aunts and uncles and we were together for 8 years. I felt better after I found out they did a similar thing to my ex's sister in law. Not a big deal in the long run but kind of amusing." Jan. 17, 2006:
"My girlfriends name is Christina. She usually goes by Tina or Christina. Personally, I love the name. I think it is a beautiful name. Lots of people try to call her Christine and it bothers her. But most call her Tina or Christina, I love the name." Dec. 28, 2005:
"My best friend is called Christina. She is kind, v.funny and caring but very over-protective!" Nov. 22, 2005:
"My friend is named Christina and it's pretty, but I think it's overused a bit. Some people spell it KRISTINA, CRISTINA, or KHRISTINA. Some people even pronounce it KRIS-TEE-AH-NA or CRY-STEE-NA. Odd, yes. I know many Christina's. Here are some nicknames I've seen for Christina (it doesn't matter about the spelling): Chrissie, Chris, Tina, Tiny, Steena, Rissie, Riss, Rina, Ristina, Stee, and of course, the classic, Xtina." Nov. 20, 2005:
"My name is Christina...& I love it!! I think it is a really sweet, girly name & I'm also called Chris for short which is quite boyish." Nov. 19, 2005:
"I am Christina. I love the name. I used to go by Chrissy when I was little, now as an adult, I go by Christina. The only thing I don't like is people often try to call me Christine instead of Christina." Jun. 23, 2005:

"I don't care for my name and I have to agree, it's VERY annoying when I'm called Chris or Christine." Mar. 4, 2008:
"Way too common! My husband suggested this often. I prefer flower or stone names. (ex: Jade or Daisy, Amber or Rose, etc.)" Aug. 26, 2007:
"Not a great name. I go by Tina. Why? Hey, years of Catholic school and nuns telling me that I can't go by Tina, but yet they called me "Christine" all of the time.
I got so sick of kids, teachers and people calling me Christine, that I just stopped answering. Then, half of the nuns called me Chris. SO, this name doesn't translate well in Catholic school." Jun. 14, 2007:
"My name ic Christina and I think it's the worst name ever, It sounds like a old womens name and I'm 20 so I need to sound Fun,Cute,and Sweet so i got by Chrissy!" Jan. 11, 2007:
"I never know what people should call me, my girlish name of 'Chrissy' has stuck with me and I can't seem to get away from it, I would have much prefered to be call Christine." May. 4, 2006:

"Christina is my name, and I loved it but I get annoyed whenever people mistakes it for Christianah.... my family and friends always called me TINA, and I love it cause it's cool" Feb. 4, 2020:
"I was born in the 50s and have been called Tina and the annoying Christine except for my best friend. She calls me Teen." Nov. 13, 2017:
"my name is Christina and i've had every nick name under the sun. when i was in high school there were 5 Christina's in my class all spelled differently the craziest way i've ever seen it spelt though was Khrystenyenah. Waaay to long for my taste" Jul. 20, 2010:
"oh my, over the years i have been called ALL sorts of things. It can be very annoying but its quite a nice name :)" Dec. 19, 2009:
"I know something REALLY confusing. My name is not Christina, it's Christine. But my teacher's name is Christina. And something even more confusing is that I have a second cousin named Kristina. It's a nice name, but just too confusing for me." Jun. 22, 2009:
"I'm a Christina.....and yes with a "CH" not a "K". It's so funny to read everyone's experiences with this beautiful name. I've always been known as Christina, however, now that I'm an aunt to three small children, I'm affectionately known as "T". I love the nickname because it's their special name for me. I've always loved my name and I wouldn't change it. Christinas of the world....unite!" Feb. 27, 2009:
"People always ask C or K when they spell my name and I always reply CH. Ive actually gotten to the point where I just spell it BEFORE they ask. I also get Christine A LOT! After years of correcting people, I now just answer to whatever they want to call me. Correcting people usually doesnt work anyway!" Jan. 6, 2009:
"Born in 1983 my name is Christina as well. My whole life until I graduated college my family and friends called me Chrissy, and I hate it! Chrissy sounds like a kids name, very prissy and informal. My father named me Christina but yet he has never called me Christina. I also get the do you spell it with a C or a K and I always reply with "CH"! I have always loved my name and when I started my career I started going by Christina, so I feel like an adult. My nicknames are: Chrissy, Chris, Chrissy-Lynn, and C. I also don't understand why people call us Christine... I guess they are to lazy to say "UH"." Nov. 20, 2008:
"This is my name, and yet I never liked it. It's long, and I know so many other girls with the same name at work, school, and on base. It's annoying and confusing." Sep. 24, 2008:
"My name is Christina and I HATED it when I was a little girl but as I've grown up, I've learned to like it. I do love the way it sounds with my middle name though, Christina Carole. My nick names are Chrissy (my family calls me this) and Christa (everyone else calls me this). No one ever calls me Christina though. It bugs me when people call me anything other then Chrissy, CHrista or Christina but it SERIOUSLY bugs me when people call me Chris. Almost everyone assumes it is spelled with a K which annoys me too especially since the most common spelling is with a CH. I never got made fun of for my first name, just my maiden name. My initials are CCB. There are a lot of us out there though and that can be slightly annoying." Jul. 19, 2008:
"i like my name and hate christine too - i would rather people got my name totally wrong and called me jane or something! I am british but work with a lot of americans and its they that always ask is CH or K? I get chrissie and Tina - the latter which i hate! Be proud Christina's of the world!" Jul. 5, 2008:
"It's ok to be called by your parents but you want to be able to have a short name that your friends can call you that doesn't take years to say." Sep. 28, 2007:
"Born in 1978 in Germany, my name is Christina. Then, it was one of the most common names for girls. Other names girls my age have are for instance Julia, Stephanie, Katrin or Anna. I like my name because it is serious, but sometimes I think it sounds a bit hard, not soft enough like "Anna" or "Lena" would do. But the name Christina is always ok with eyeryone, noone thinks it is strange. My family calls me Tina." Sep. 7, 2007:
"Christina is a fantastic name and is universal, some people think its origin is greek or Italian, or from a meaning of 'Christain'. This name is very English and can be shortened in a variety of ways that are not offencive." Jun. 21, 2007:
"haha. i'm also a christinA
in school, the teachers constantly call me christine, so afterwards i just reply, UH. it works. they remember. =)" Apr. 1, 2007:
"i am also another ChristinA and i absolutly hate it when i am called Christine. it annoyes me so much. i know it is just an error/mistake but just STOP if you ever want to call a Christina Christine, she will get mad." Jan. 31, 2007:

""My name is Christina. I love my name. I am usually called Tina or Chris. I dislike the fact that most people spell it wrong : Cristina"" May. 9, 2006:
"I also get mistakenly called Christine instead of Christina, and it's annoying. I also don't like it when people take the liberty of shortening it to Chris before they know whether or not I use that nickname. And, when I was a child, I felt the name Christina sounded a bit "prissy."" Feb. 19, 2006:
"My name is Christina and I personally love the sound of my name. However, for some reason many people fail to acknowledge the "A" at the end of my name. As a result, I'm often called Christine instead. (It's very annoying)Growing up many people would call me Chris or Tina." Jul. 17, 2005:
