    I know a Christelle stateside and one in France, I've always thought it was a respectable name.

    Edit: A pretty interesting cultural observation to see is that this French name is fine over there but it's deemed trashy here while Lilou or Océane are cool here but are considered overused and tacky by a lot of people in France.

    I would use the beautiful classic Christine or Christina -- and, if a nn is desired -- use Christy or Chrissy as you were thinking.

    I don't understand why Christelle would be considered trashy? Maybe it's because I took French in high school and Christelle was just a commonly used name in the textbooks, but I've always found it a refreshing and prettier version of Crystal/Chrystal. I am probably drawn to it over Crystal because of the -elle ending, which I generally adore. I like it much more than Crystal or Christine, personally. If I used it at all, it'd be as a MN--the Crystal/Christelle sound is a bit too dated for me. I think something like Jane Christelle would be gorgeous, though.
