[name]Do[/name] you think [name]Chrissy[/name] can stand on it’s own? The only full name I’ve found for it (that isn’t overused/boring) is [name]Christelle[/name] (pn criss-tell) and I don’t really love it. So, which do you like better…[name]Chrissy[/name] on its own, [name]Christelle[/name] nn [name]Chrissy[/name], or do you have some other suggestion for a full name that I may be missing?


I think that [name]Chrissy[/name] can stand on its own! I think the spelling [name]Krissy[/name] would be better for standing alone, but either way I really like it and think it would work fine. :slight_smile:

If I heard [name]Chrissy[/name] I would probably assume it was short for [name]Christine[/name]. I think it is better as a nn.
There is also [name]Christabel[/name].
Have you tried doing a supersearch for names containing ‘chris’? It brings up about 85 options.

I adore [name]Chrissy[/name]! It’s sort of a GP name for me, though - love it, but can’t help thinking it sounds out-dated because of [name]Christine[/name]/[name]Christina[/name].

[name]Christabel[/name] is my favourite alternative. [name]Christabella[/name] is a bit much, but sweet.

I knew a very popular, beautiful, intelligent girl named [name]Kristen[/name] who went by [name]Krissy[/name] 100% of the time and pulled it off. I’m not a huge fan of the name as a nickname or on it’s on, and I don’t particular like [name]Christelle[/name] ([name]Crystal[/name]?). I like [name]Christine[/name] as a full name the most.

I think it could stand on it’s own, but I don’t like it. It’s too nicknamey [name]IMO[/name].

Other suggestions:

[name]Christiana[/name] (I would say it [name]Chris[/name]-tee-ahn-uh)

I don’t think so. I love [name]Christabel[/name] the best, but there’s also [name]Christianna[/name], [name]Christianne[/name], and even [name]Christian[/name], which actually was a girl’s name in medieval times. ([name]Christian[/name] was the name of one of the daughters of [name]Robert[/name] the [name]Bruce[/name].)

This is a little off the wall, but in this day and age of flower names, have you thought about Chrysanthemum? Granted, it’s really over the top, but…

I don’t think so, sorry. It seems perpetually cutesy. I actually have a lingering name crush on the French [name]Christelle[/name] from my high school French classes so I think that’s a fabulous option! I think [name]Christiana[/name], [name]Krista[/name]/[name]Christa[/name], and [name]Christabelle[/name] are lovely, as well. It seems to go against everything Nameberry stands for, lol, but I actually like [name]Kristina[/name]/[name]Kristine[/name] but absolutely can’t stomach [name]Christine[/name]/[name]Christina[/name]. I think [name]Christelle[/name], nn [name]Chrissy[/name], is really sweet, though!

I don’t like [name]Chrissy[/name] on it’s own. I think [name]Christine[/name], [name]Christina[/name], [name]Christiana[/name] would all be better choices. [name]Chrissy[/name] is a cute nn though.

No. I find just plain [name]Christa[/name] elegant, and there is [name]Crisanta[/name], which is Spanish for Chrysanthemum I believe.

I like [name]Chrissy[/name] on its own. When I was growing up, [name]Chrissy[/name] [name]Snow[/name] was a character on a TV sitcom called Three’s Company. For some reason, probably because my brain likes to collect rarely useful trivia, I remember an episode where [name]Chrissy[/name] explains that her full name isn’t [name]Christina[/name], it’s [name]Christmas[/name]. [name]Christmas[/name] [name]Snow[/name].

I like [name]Christabelle[/name].
or a simple [name]Christy[/name].

I’m sorry, but I don’t think [name]Chrissy[/name] can/should stand on its own… it’s too much of a nickname. I have a friend whose name is just [name]Kristy[/name] and it’s always bugged her. I have a nickname-y name as well and it’s always irritated me, and I’ve sort of wished I had the longer version to fall back on.

The upside to this is that there are several names that [name]Chrissy[/name] can be short for beyond [name]Christina[/name]/[name]Christine[/name]/[name]Kristen[/name]. [name]Christa[/name] is probably my favorite, but previous posters have mentioned several others that would also work quite well.

I actually know a [name]Christelle[/name], and I like it, but everyone always assumes that it is [name]Crystal[/name], and it comes
off as really pretenious when she tells them it’s actually [name]Christelle[/name]. I don’t think [name]Chrissy[/name] can stand alone, though.
