Meaning:Of Christopher; Bearing Christ
From the silver screen to Ancient Greece, the masculine name Christof can take your little one on quite the journey of discovery. A shortened version of Christopher, Christof means “bearing Christ” in Greek, perhaps encouraging baby to live by their Christian faith. Little Christofs and Christophers have been running around the world for centuries, with their names deriving from the Ancient Greek word Christos, meaning “Messiah.” You may also recognize this name from the iconic film The Truman Show, where lead character Truman Burbank unknowingly lives his life in a reality TV show, created and produced by scheming villain Christof. Despite this not-ideal character association, we’re sure your Christof will be the hero of their own story.
