- Comments and insights on the name Cristina: | Edit
I am 29 and my name is Cristina. I have always really liked my name. It is a nice name that is not too popular. I don't really remember having other girls in my classes with my name, unlike the names Jennifer, Ashley, Sara... My name has many nicknames: Cris, Crissy, Cristine but without even trying, people never called me by nicknames. I am Hispanic which is why my name has no 'h'. I think it looks prettier that way, but people always spell it with an 'h' unless they are Hispanic. I love my name and wouldn't change it for the world.
