Meaning:Follower of Christ
Christian is a classic gender-neutral name of Latin, Greek, and English origins, meaning “follower of Christ.” Christian was primarily given to girls in the Middle Ages, but boys began bearing the title in the 18th Century, thanks to John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. While Christian may seem like an obvious nod to parents’ religious faith, this sweet-sounding name also has secular appeal. Heavenly Christian is in good company with A-list celebs, like Christian Bale and Christan Slater, and the name also shares ties with fashion moguls Dior and Louboutin.
