I'm A Co-Owner Of This Name...
written by Christopher S, February 21, 2008
I've co-owned this name with many other people for over 25 years.

It's easy to spell, you can use "Chris" for short and people always understand what your name is the first time.

I'm pretty sure the name Chris is good to go. So pick it... do me proud...

I have a son named Riley by the way and one on the way... no clue of what to name the new son!?
I always loved the name christopher

As soon as we found out we were having a boy, the name came to me, and it stuck throughout my entire pregnancy. He already had his entire name before he was born, 2 1/2 yrs. ago. I can truly say I am in love w/ this boy as I have never been in love like this before. :-) I honestly can't wait for the time to come to have another child. God bless.
My Christopher

I have recently met and fallin for a guy named Christopher. He is the most gentle creature I have ever met. He is so polite and has the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. I have never known a Christopher before, but would definately consider the name for my first born son. Hopefully, his first born on! (-:

My cousin's name... kind of common, but he spells it K-R-I-S-T-O-P-H-E-R. He goes by Kris and is a helicopter pilot! Even though it's common, I think it's good, traditional, and nice!

my sons name is christopher alexsander

I really like this name too. My husband doesn't like this name so much, but he likes Larry and I don't. He thinks that if we named our son Christopher Larry, we'd both get what we want, but I really do not like the name Larry at all! It sounds too old. I don't mean any disrespect to anyone named Larry, I just don't think that my son seems like a Larry.
