Christina/Kristina

    What are your thoughts on this name? A close friend has a teenage daughter by this name. My kids absolutely love her and look forward to when Christina comes over to play. I love the thought of using Christina as a middle name for a future daughter to kind of honor her but my only hold up is that two of the three of my girls already have a C middle name and I don’t want the oldest to grow up with three younger sisters thinking she is the odd ball for having a non-C middle name. Is that a silly worry? That’s why I thought of Kristina but I just don’t *love* it as much.

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks!

    i dont think the middle initial matters. also shes the oldest and the first. maybe if she were the youngest, she might not like that. im really tired of hearing the name christina. i know many christinas born in the 80s and 90s. i really dont like the kristina spelling. i think if you want to honor a christina you could use it as a middle name. it is pretty. just really common among that generation. i know a kristiana. i think its spelled that way. kind of a different twist. i really like the nn chrissy or krissy.

    I like Christina much better than Kristina. I don’t think the middle initial matters much. Could you use Christina’s middle name? That way you can still honor your friend and avoid the initial scenario….

    I much prefer Christina over Kristina, especially if you’re trying to honor someone. I don’t think the oldest will feel “left out” because it isn’t like it’s a first name. I’m sure there is other significance to her mn that you can share with her to help her understand (if she even notices). I like the idea of finding out Christina’s mn, that would be cool too..

    I don’t like her middle name (Diane). ;)

    I prefer Christina, too. I really like the name (and Christiana). It would bug me a little to have one girl be the odd one out with a non-C middle name but I do think you can get away with it better if it’s the oldest. Or even ask her if she minds? She might not care. :)

    Honestly, I like Kristina a lot more than Christina. Though I like Christine a lot more than either of those two.
    I don’t think I’d worry about the middle names not all matching being a problem for your oldest – it might bug her a little, but I don’t think she’ll hate it. Especially if, if she ever asks you about it, you just explain that the name choices had nothing to do with the letters they start with. But I do think I personally wouldn’t be able to do it. It would drive me mad that they didn’t all match, but most of them did. But if you like the name, don’t change the spelling just for that. Either go with the spelling you love, or pick a different non-C name…
