Today’s Challenge: Were you named after anyone?
Eh, not really a fan of today’s challenge. For one thing, it’s a closed-ended question. If I were feeling a little more sarcastic today I might just write “Nope” and call the post finished.
So, yeah. Nope, not named after anyone. My name is Christi, of course, and my parents chose the name because it means “Follower of Christ.” My faith is central in my life, so I do love the meaning behind my name. I have to say, though, Christi is just one of those names that has a million spelling options and no one ever guesses right.
Cristy Cristi Christy Kristy Kristi Kristie
Since we live in Texas I usually just tell people it’s spelled like Corpus Christi. Which works, unless people don’t know how to spell that either. By that point, I just decide it’s pointless and that being Kristy on my Starbucks hot chocolate order won’t hurt a bit.
