Christopher

bearing Christ
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 51
Christopher was the second popular boy’s name for 18 years, according to Social Security data, although it recently fell out of the top 25. Christopher was a popular name among the early Christians, who wished to show their devotion by bearing Christ in their names and their hearts. Over time, Christopher became more secular and better known for the Christopher Robin character in AA Milne’s Winnie the Pooh. Nicknames include the often-used Chris and the less common Kit and Topher. Those on a journey can still ask for the protection of Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers.

Better known as Christopher Robin in the “Winnie the Pooh” movies, this character is BFF with the lovable bear and lives in Hundred Acre Wood with Owl, Rabbit, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger. Christopher is dependable and can always be counted on to come up with a solution when things go awry, as when Pooh gets stuck in a door at Rabbit’s house. The friendly, smart Christopher is always up for an adventure with his animal pals.
