If your name is Kristen, you are always looking for new opportunities, adventures, and challenges. Lucky for you, you are more than up to taking on any challenge. You have incredible versatility and flexibility in your nature, and change comes naturally to you. You are not afraid of shaking things up a bit, especially when it comes to finding new and efficient way of doing things. You have the vision that others sometimes lack, and your contributions are unique and appreciated. You are a natural organizer of the efforts of others, but you have a difficult time delegating responsibility. You are so anxious to see things done right that you might just feel that you want to do them yourself. This is when it is most important to trust the skills and abilities of others. They also have unique talents and contributions to offer.
You are always looking down the road to the latest and greatest adventure, so don’t forget to stay put long enough to finish the things you start. Also remember to stay patient with those around you . . . they are the ones that support your efforts and keep you from getting burned out. You become easily bored with routine and menial, administrative tasks, so these might be the best ones to delegate as you set your sights on the bigger picture!
The name Kristen actually goes back to the Medieval Latin name of Christianus, meaning “a Christian.” Even further, it goes back to the Greek name Christos or Christ, which was the name given to Jesus, as the translation of the Hebrew word for Messiah (or “anointed one.”) The Latin Christianus is what led to all the Christian/Chris/Kris names, including the Danish and Norwegian form of Kristen.
Names based on belief in Christianity (such as Christian, Christiana, Christina, and Christine) have been used since the Middle Ages and came into common use in the 17th century. The “K” forms of the names (such as Kristin, Kiersten, and Kirsten) are variations that came into use in the 20th century. Kristin came into popular use in the United States in 1946. Kristen became a Top 100 name in 1969, and then achieved peak popularity in the 1970s and 1980s. Kristen achieved its ultimate popularity in 1982, with the #33 position.
