With the name Christina, you find that you are on a quest to find truth and solve the mysteries of the universe. While this sounds very flighty and not at all practical, your nature is balanced and allows you to be quite practical . . . with a creative twist! You are someone who is capable of coming up with an original solution to problems and devise innovations that others find appealing. You always have people around you, as your genial and happy nature attracts others, and they come to you to seek your good and practical advice (even though you might not follow it yourself!) Be careful, though, not to get too caught up with the trials and tribulations of others. You have your own life to live too, and if you get too involved in their problems, you won’t have the energy left to live it! For this reason, you might sometimes procrastinate . . . putting off to tomorrow what should be done today. Don’t get dragged down!
Your ability to help others isn’t limited just to giving good advice. You also find that you are able to offer them spiritual inspiration as they move along their paths towards self-fulfillment.
The name of Christina is one of many names based on Christian, which means “follower of Christ.” The name Christ itself is based on the Greek “Khristos”, which was translated from the Hebrew word for Messiah (meaning “anointed one.”) The Latin feminine form of Christian was Christiana, which then led to Christina.
Christina has been a popular name in the United States since the turn of the 20th century. It became truly super popular beginning in the 1940s, when it started to climb the charts. By 1964, Christina was in the Top 100 of popularity, and in the 1970s and 1980s, she was in the Top 20. The peak position for Christina’s popularity was #12, which it hit both in 1975 and again in 1985.
