Wow. Lots of "trashy" in this thread. I try not to use that word because, well... there are actual human being names Christelle. No one should be told they are like trash. Jeez. But yeah... I'm sure you see the problem by now. :-/
Have you considered Christabelle? Or, as Augusta_lee recommended (and I'm biased, since it's one of my favorite names), Chrysantha? There is an enormous amount of interesting and varied 'christ-' names...Boys: Ignatius, Hieronymus, Casimir, Osias, Ludovic, Hesperus, Calixto, Aurelius
Girls: Amarantha, Jacintha, Isannah, Chrysantha, Jonquil, Oleanna, Esmeranda

Neither trashy nor classy. I would think the parents were looking for an alternative to Christine or Christina. Personally, I have never been fond of the nickname Chrissy as it makes me think of someone not too bright and little ditzy. (Maybe the show, Three's Company, is to blame for that.). I do like the nn Chris for a girl as that seems strong.I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

I wouldn't say trashy... but the 3 people I know named Christelle all lean towards tacky so that is my association with the name. Not a name I would want to give my daughter.
2 of them say their mother was trying to make their name look fancy by choosing it over Chrystal. The other wanted a christian name for her and decided to use that because it has Christ in it.
