Scottish and Irish diminutive of Christopher
"bearer of Christ"

Christie Origin and Meaning

The name Christie is a boy's name meaning "bearer of Christ".

Kit and Topher are the Christopher nicknames du jour, thanks to actors Harington and Grace. But now that Chris is feeling less ubiquitous, this jaunty Scottish and Irish short form has a certain charm.
