As the title asks really, are there any alternative full names to Christopher?

Kit's been short for Christopher for quite some time - see Kit Marlowe, mates with Shakespere.

Never heard it with any other names.

Oh sorry, misread the question.

We pondered it as short for Christian but decided it was a step too far.

In a Dick Francis book he has the hero who is Kit short for Christmas!

I do know a Kit whose name is Kit on his birth certificate, so not short for anything.

Kit used to be a very common nickname for Christopher. Not used so much now but I really like it.

Thinking phonetically, you could go with either Christopher or Christian. Kit is ace, especially in the form of the lovely chap who plays John Snow in Game of Thrones!
