May. 16, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Krista, and I love it! Few people have it, but it's still not too odd. It's very pretty and simple. I do have to tell people how to spell it, but just by saying "it starts with a K".

  • "My name is Krista. Born 2/1/86. The name Krista/Christa was heavily mentioned in the media the week I was born because of the space shuttle Challenger disaster. I was a few days old before my mother agreed with my father on it. I prefer my middle name (Selene) and use my full name as much as possible. I think I may be the only person in the world with my full name (via Google search results). I don't love my first name but I don't mind it either because it is unique enough. I went through all my schooling without ever having another Christa/Krista in my class or even school. I've met a few others over the years or friends of friends but none with a K. Only those closest to me call me Kris and that's not often. The main problem I have with my name is when I introduce myself, people always expect it to end with -tina, -tin- -ty, -tal, etc... (Kristina, Kristin, Kristy, Kristal, etc)... Especially when I'm in crowded bars. ALWAYS have to emphasize the -TA! :)" Jul. 12, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Krista and I was born in 1980. I love it! It's different, pretty and definitely unique! I've met other people with my name but it's never been a name that pops up everywhere so I always know when someone says 'Krista' that they're talking to me! Although I do get people who quickly glance at the 'Krist-' part and immediately assume it's Kristen or Kristal.

When I was growing up, there were 3 of us all with the "K" spelling, so we had to use our last initials.

Since my last name starts with a K, I get a lot of rude comments asking if my middle name starts with K also. I think you can put together my initials if it were.. My only suggestion.. If your in that situation, spell it with a C or CH! I have a difficult last name so I'm used to not finding anything with my name unless special ordered!" Jun. 4, 2014: Report as inappropriate
