Etymology & Historical Origin - Christian

The name Christian comes from the Latin word “Christianus” which means, not surprisingly, ‘follower of Christ.’ The Greek name, “Khristos” is a translation of the Hebrew term “Messiah,” meaning ‘anointed.’ The name Christian as a given name has been in use since the Middle Ages, although more typically for girls than boys.

Popularity of the Name Christian

The name Christian has seen most of its popularity in the United States from the 1970’s onward. While considered a unisex name, it is much more readily bestowed upon boys than girls in the United States. Christian has been a name on the charts for over a century. For girls, the name Christian doesn’t start to come into use until the mid-1960’s and even then it never really gains significant popularity. Girls are typically given other more feminine variations of the name (e.g., Christine, Kristin, etc.). Christian also seems to be gaining ground on Christopher in the past couple of decades, perhaps owing to its quicker two-syllable sound. And when it comes to declaring one’s faith, you can’t get much better than this. For boys, the name can be shortened to Chris or Krish, adding flexibility.
