Gender: M Meaning of Christian: "follower of Christ" Origin of Christian: Greek Christian's Popularity in 2013: #35

Christian had been firmly planted in the Top 25 since 1996, not far below the stalwart Christopher, and is still, at Number 35, quite popular. Once considered overly pious, Christian is now seen as making a bold statement of faith by some, while also having secular appeal for others, perhaps influenced by such celebrities as Christian Slater and Christian Bale, not to mention the fashion world's Dior, Lacroix, Louboutin and Audigier.

In the Middle Ages, Christian was a female name, but turned male with the introduction of the hero of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress.
