Meaning:follower of christ; to name
Christen is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin and a variation of the long-held Christian. Though both blessed with a virtuous nature, thanks to their shared meaning of "follower of Christ," Christen's etymology suggests one primed to use that trait to uplift and champion. After all, to christen is to name—for some even anoint—but most of all to employ something new. In a myriad of contexts, Christen is the very thing given to empower others, celebrate honors, and welcome new chapters. As a name, Christen is the clearest way of sharing with the world baby's pure intention and goodwill.
