Meaning:bearer of Christ
Like most names that start with a Chr- there is always a “K” alternative to choose from. The Greek boy’s name Kristopher is no different, originating from the spelling Christopher, meaning “bearer of Christ.” Deriving from the Greek word Christóforos, it receives its meaning from the breakdown of Christós and phero, meaning “Christ” and “to bear” respectively. This name also can relate back to St. Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, who offers protection while on their journey.
