Meaning:Follower of Christ
Kristen is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin and means “follower of Christ”. Historically, Kristen was a term to describe a believer of Christianity but somewhere along the way, this distinctive title has matured into a timeless and popular name more synonymous with super-stardom and fame than religion. A handful of noteworthy celebrities go by Kristen, namely Kristen Bell from the iconic Disney classic Frozen, and Kristin Wiig, the actress and comedian renowned for her roles in many a box office hit. If baby is destined for Hollywood, naming them Kristen could be their one-way ticket to a star on the Walk of Fame.
