    How dated is it and do you like it?

    They mash-up seems weird to me. Christa/Christy/Christen/Christina is definately dated where Bel/Belle/Bella is so trendy and popular. Because I don't like dated or trendy names, I'm saying no to this one.

    I don't find this to be dated because it has never been very common, certainly not in this century or the 20th. I find this name 3 or 4 times in my family tree in centuries past. I think it sounds somewhat old-fashioned, but in a good way.

    I actually like this name, probably because I like most of the other Chris- names, Christina, Christine, etc. (except the nickname Chris or Chrissy) and I like names that end in -bel.

    It's kind of a mix - Chris names are now out of fashion, while -bel names are in. I think it works, though.

    LOVE this name! And definitely prefer this spelling over Christabelle, which looks too fussy to me.

    My first cabbage patch in the 80's when they first came out was Christabelle. I love it spelled either your way or the same as my childhood doll
