  1. This was my middle name, and I was named after my mothers first child who was stillborn. I picked this name not just becsuse of family history but because of its lovely sound and its traditional meaning while still sounding feminine and current. It is familiar yet unique and easy to spell, prounce and read. It also has many nicknames such as Kris, Kristy, Krissy, etc, some unisex others feminine. Its also the american take on Kirsten which reaches to my Scandinavian roots.
