Etymology & Historical Origin - Kiersten

Kiersten is a modern English and American form of Kirsten. Kirsten is the Danish and Norwegian form of Christina from the Medieval Latin name Christianus meaning “a Christian”. Ultimately, the Latin word for a Christian is derived from the Greek Christos from “chrio” meaning “to anoint”. Christós (Christ) was a title given to Jesus of Nazareth by Greek Christians in the first century to signify him as the anointed one by the power of God. The Greek Christós is also a translation of the Hebrew word “Messiah” meaning essentially the same thing (anointed). Names like Christian, Christiana, Christina and Christine have been in use since the Middle Ages but did not become widely common until the 17th century. Today, the “Christian” family of names is one of the most successful in modern times. Kiersten is one of the more recent variations in use today.

Popularity of the Name Kiersten

Surprisingly, the name Kiersten was not bestowed upon American baby girls frequently enough to land a spot on the Top 1000 list until 1988. It also reached its high point of usage (which was mildly moderate at best) in the year 2000 before declining back down the charts. Certainly there’s a lot of competition in the “Christina” category today, and Kiersten is not currently one of the favorites. Still, it’s a pretty name with an off-beat spelling and pronunciation. Many parents may find Kiersten a more contemporary and unique rendering of the old perennial favorite Christine names. Plus it’s got a little spunk and spirit to it.
