Characteristics of Cristian
Etymology & Historical Origin - Cristian
Cristian is a slightly altered respelling of the more classical boy’s name Christian. Christian originated 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 throughout Europe since the Middle Ages, although it was typically a girl’s name back then (such as in the German Christianne). Christian eventually became more of a male name in modern times, and Cristian as a spelling mutation occurred very recently.
Popularity of the Name Cristian
The name Cristian (without the “H”) first appeared on the U.S. popularity charts in 1977, right as the name Christian was achieving its greatest success. As a boy’s name, Christian has been in use in America for well over 100 years. Even though it’s sometimes thought of as a unisex name, it’s far more given to little boys than girls. Names like Christine, Kristin, etc. are now predominantly used for the young ladies. Cristian feels like a more modern, updated version of Christian, and by taking out the H the name becomes much more secular. It also appears that Cristian is the Spanish form of the name Christian (along with Cristiano).
