Nicknames for Christopher

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any good nicknames for Christopher, besides Chris? Or any variation on the name Chris for a boy? Even way out there suggestions would be a great help.

I read a book where the boy was called Toph. i kind of like it, I think it might be an "in" nickname right now though

My DH's cousin goes by Chris, but his first name is actually Christensen. I like that as a first name.

There is an actor - Topher Grace - who may be making that version used more often.

I love the name Christopher! In the middle ages, the popular nickname was Kit.

Some British nicknames are Kit and Kip (according to a book I have), and an interesting version that a friend used for her son is Kristof (not sure how she spells it).

DH's name is Kristoffer, pronounced KrisTOFFer instead of the normal KRIStoffer. (I wouldn't recommend changing the pronunciation of such a common name--very confusing.) I've always called him Kristoff, but most of his family and everyone he works with calls him Kris.

What about Sport? Just joking!

I knew someone once named Cristian (pronounced Kriss-tee-AHN, accent on the last syllable), and his wife called him Tatan. I don't know if that was their own thing, or a common nickname in the Spanish-speaking country where he came from.

These are great, lots of ones I hadn't heard of. I would love to hear more. It seems like Christopher is name that doesn't have tons of nicknames.

Dh's friend Christopher has the nickname "Tiffer", and I've also heard of Cristo.

We call our Christopher CJ sometimes (and always when typing or writing, LOL). His middle name is Jacob. I really like Kit, gonna have to start using that one We use Chris a lot. And sometimes Topher, but always joking-didn't know people actually used it as a name! For me, Topher always flashes a mental image of a gopher. :LOL

We call my brother CooToo. I think my sister couldn't say his name quite right when she was little and the nick name stuck.

I went to school w/ a kid who went by "Pher", as in fur. His sister was Jessica, but went by Jec. I think both names evolved from the kids mispronounciations as little kids, and just stuck. Jec writes for the local paper now, and still uses jec

I have friends who are married and each has a brother named Christopher. Luckily for them the confusion is minimal because one has been called 'Cricket' for all of his life!

A good friend of mine, named Christopher at birth, has always gone by the nickname Kit, since he was a wee babe! I really like that nickname, instead of Chris.

He can always tell when telemarketers are calling, because they'll ask for "Chris Lastname"!!
