Meaning:follower of Christ
Though many moms and dads may choose this baby name because of the strong religious connection, Christina has also been given to plenty of baby girls whose parents simply liked the sound and look of the name. Dating to medieval times, Christina feels more modern when used in its whole form—the shortened versions, Chris and Tina, sound retro without the cool factor. Maybe it’s why celebrity divas, like Christina Aguilera, Applegate, Hendricks and Milian, use the name at its full strength.
