Like this and don't know any, do you? Surprisingly uncommon?

Not keen on Chrissy as a short form though. What else could/would people shorten it to?

Christy. Wanted it for dd but taken by a friend. It should be Christabel.

That's interesting. Christy is cute, want this now!

Christabel Pankhurst is the only one I know of smile

I like it.

Christabel fab imo.

You could do a lot worse than being the namesake of Christabel Bielenberg, The Past is Myself is one of my favourite books.

I have a friend called Christa. Could also be shortened to Bella (prefer Christa, though).

there is a long Coleridge poem of the same name.

Christa also a great short form! Thanks.

I wonder why more don't use it? Why are Annabel and Isabel so popular by comparison?
