Origin:Diminutive of Christina
Description:One of the coolest girls in the class of '73, still cute but not quite as youthful.
Origin:Scottish and Irish diminutive of Christopher
Meaning:"bearer of Christ"
Description: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.
