Kristian is the Scandinavian spelling of the Latin name Christian (Christianus), which means “follower of Christ” or “Christian.” This masculine name is ideal if you wish to share your faith with baby. Christ was the title given to Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah and son of God in Christianity. Christ comes from the Greek word chrio, which means “to anoint,” as Jesus was anointed with the power of God. While Christian is the more common spelling of this lyrical title, Kristian has that sleek Nordic appeal and resembles trendy names like Kristen and Kirsten. Whether for style or faith, a spiritual name like Kristian may inspire baby to find their truth in a world full of possibilities and hope.
