It really is a great, underused name.

Shortenings - Kit, Kip, Tiff, Chris (Chris? Really?)

None of my DSes are called it, but it is a great name

Yup, classic name.

What's not to like??

Tiff? Really? wink

But yes, Christopher is rather nice.

I don't like it grin

i think the same about William

lovely underused name

We thought of it, by my sisters partner is called that, so it was too close to home for us. Good name though

MamaG Fri 29-Aug-08 13:01:26

Its good because there aren't many of them about, but you won't get people saying "Christopher? Oh what an unusual name" grin

<<MamaG wonders if she'll start a worldwide trend of Christophers>>

Not keen on Christopher; but William is a lovely name.

MamaG Fri 29-Aug-08 13:01:59

naily I loved William, but there are quite a lot at DD's school - at least one per class

nailpolish Fri 29-Aug-08 13:03:00

there are hardly any round here

I like CHristopher but DH think's it's a gay hairdresser's name

grin thumbwitch 'gay hairdresser'

MamaG Fri 29-Aug-08 13:29:58

LOL at gay hairdresser! Surely only if its Christopher-Paul or similar

nice name except

Tiff????? are you sure?
Kip is dutch for chicken.

I came across the name Zak the other name. Zak is dutch for pocket.

Hmmm..don't like it. I considered Christian but didn't like the shortening of Chris.

also, don't think William is underused at all. It's very, very popular round here.

nappyaddict Fri 29-Aug-08 14:17:45

i've never known a christian be shortened to chris which is quite odd really.

CuckooSplodgeandTubs Fri 29-Aug-08 14:20:12

My cousin has a Kit. I quite like it, but I find it a bit feminine too.

I know a lovely Christian. Much prefer it to Christopher, but would never have chosen it for my own son. I prefer a more religiously ambiguous name!

It's often shortened to Topher in the States....

Good choice MamaG ...

NotAnOtter Fri 29-Aug-08 14:29:32

like it but one of my pet hates is it being pronounced ChrisTIpher

I like it - I had mentioned it to DH, but then we both agreed we liked Christian better, which later became won't be using it, but it was the original inspiration for us.
