Gender: F Pronunciation: cris-TEEN Meaning of Christine: "anointed" Origin of Christine: French variation of Christina Christine's Popularity in 2016: #729

Christine was the dominant feminine variation of Christopher forty or fifty years ago, when French E-endings were preferred over As; it was a Top 20 name for several years, from 1966 to 1974. But though it still hangs in on the popularity list, today most any other version would be considered more stylish, from Kristen to Kirsten to Christina herself.

Christine is the heroine of the 1910 novel and hit musical Phantom of the Opera and the automotive protagonist of Stephen King's 1983 horror novel. Christine has been serenaded in song by everyone from Elton John to Kiss to Motorhead.
