The popularity of Krishna
, as a female name, is because of Krishna
Navas de Caso (her stage name is Krishna
de Caso), a very popular Chilean journalist and writer. Her sister is the actress and painter Yuyuniz de Castro and she is daugther of the painter Reynaldo
Navas and the TV hostess Eliana
Since it ends in -A, in Spanish the name is perceived as feminine and it sounds as a modern variant of Cristina
, even if both names are not related at all. A lot of people who are using the name don't even know that it is a deity name.
