Opinions? I really love this name, but is it silly? I love the NN Cryssie too!

MarieJeanne Wed 27-Apr-16 12:19:06

I quite like it, although it does make me think of Crystal Tips and Alistair.
Christelle is very common in France.

Very 1980s Dynasty for me. Sorry.

Whathaveilost Wed 27-Apr-16 12:21:21

I like it.

Only1scoop Wed 27-Apr-16 12:21:44

Prefer Christie

Always think of shoulder pads with Chrystal

SummerGreanland Wed 27-Apr-16 12:27:32

I like Crystal

TempsPerdu Wed 27-Apr-16 12:28:01

Crystal used to be my absolute favourite name when I was about 8 (this was very much the '80s Dynasty era!). It does have a nice sound, but right now I think it comes across as very dated and a bit brash.

I think it's a bit silly sorry, but could just be me.

No sorry op it sounds a bit daft to me too. Why not just have chrissie if you like it?

FindingTheRightName Wed 27-Apr-16 12:35:29

Because I don't like it enough. I like the whole thing smile

I bet loads of people will hate this suggestion, but how do you feel about Star? I love it and it's sort of similar to Crystal (to me anyway). I think it's so cool and would love to use but DH would veto.

Sorry it is a bit stripper/porn star name for me.

Ha I went to school with a Cristal in the 1980's, she was teased a lot.

Its pretty, but to some it will be a stripper's stage name & not a name for a real child. I like it but for me its middle name territory if at all, sorry.

(I had a thing with jewel names when I was little, all my Sindys were called Sapphire, Crystal etc & I really like it still)

Dynasty or stripper, sadly.

Lovely name in theory, but the associations aren't great.

Funny the way that works. Rosalind means snake in the grass (I think) and James/Jacob/Jamie etc.. all mean 'supplanter/deceiver.

Don't do it - your child will have never forgive you. Find an alternative!

Whathaveilost Wed 27-Apr-16 17:28:25

I know a few Crystal's of varying ages and they all seem happy with their names!

RortyCrankle Wed 27-Apr-16 18:08:19

Very Dynasty unless we have gone back in time to the 1980s.

There was a girl a couple of years below me at primary school called Crystal-Jade and I remember thinking it was the most beautiful name ever. I was so jealous.

I still kind of like it. Bit of a 'don't think I'd actually do it but think it's really pretty anyway' kind of name.

DerelictMyBalls Wed 27-Apr-16 19:33:24

Lovely name.

Bohemond Wed 27-Apr-16 19:40:34

Dire - sorry

mrsschu Wed 27-Apr-16 21:22:38

It's dreadful IMO. Very 80's/stripper sounding.

midsomermurderess Wed 27-Apr-16 22:47:59

Reminds me of a tacky Australian I know.

MangosteenSoda Wed 27-Apr-16 22:52:10

I know a Christal and a Krystal and they are both happy with their names. Don't know any in the UK though- it's much more of an American/Australian name to my ears.
