- Comments and insights on the name Kristina: | Edit
Kristian and Kristina are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.
My friend named his daughter Kristina Catherine, thinking she'd have lots of choices for nicknames: Kristine, Kristi, Kris, Tina, Cathy, Catie, Cat, etc. Because there are SO many Kristinas around, she goes by "K.C." Two beautiful names, and she chose her initials. I thought her name was "Casey" for about the first year I knew her!
My name is Kristina Kaye and I go by Krisi. I was born a Flynn but was adopted and had a French last name. But NO ONE ever spells ANY of my names right. I have to spell every name every single time. My biggest pet peeve is being called Kristi. That is not my name. Has never been my name. And I know that less than 200 ppl in the US spell their name as I do. So ppl just can't understand. So for every person here that has that issue I feel for you. And I never find my name on anything unless I have it made. Sometimes I find Kristina, but only people that don't know me call me that.
We shold start a support group. Hi, my name is Kristina with a K, but I go by Krisi. K-R-I-S-I. And I have had this problem for 46 almost 47 years and I need help. Haha
- Personal experiences with the name Kristina: | Edit
Being a Kristina, I've come to realize there's too many ways to spell it, especially if you go by Kristi. So, anyone with this name - no matter how it's spelled - WILL have people spell it wrong. lol
My little sister's name is Kristina. We call her Kristina-Beana lol
my name is Kristina, the name is horrible people call me Chris and it is so annoying i wanna change my name sooo bad!
Growing up there was always at least 3 others around, when playing softball my mom called me KC.i hated the name Kristina when I was younger but now I love it I think it's actually a beautiful name esp when your middle name flows so well, Kristina Lynn sounds so pretty. But, I can never find my name spelt on the keychains, it's always Christina Cristina Kristen or Kristine .
I get rather excited when I'm on the phone at work and people ask if it's with a k or a c I end up thanking them because no one ever asks and it's always spelt wrong.
I don't mind when people call me kris, I just hate being called Tina, there's only a select few who can get away with it. and it's extremely adorable when a little kid attempts to say it! It always comes out Stina or isina lol
I hate when people call me Kristine it's my biggest petpeeve and when people ask my name I sometimes drag the a so they know. Or will just say hi I'm Kristina with a k!
My name is Ava Kristina and I love having it as a middle name but I do think it is very frustrating having two names that people have to ask me how to spell!!
