My name is Christen, but my parents have called me Christy since I was born. I have found more than one source that states the name as spelled means "the breath of Christ". Also, in the dictionary as (KRIS-uhn) it means "to babtize".

Although this name is normally a female name my partner Christen would like it to be known that there are actually guys that have this name too.

I love this name because it is the name of my best friend. Most people spell it Kristen but I like Christen.

I printed my name list and noticed that it said this name is masculine! It's feminine! And it's the name of my best friend. :-D

Just because you know a girl named Christen does not make it a girl's name. It's the Danish form of Christian. Just because it sounds like Kristen does not make it a girl's name.

Actually JuliaF, I don't just KNOW a person, she's my best friend, and I trust that her parents (who I know very well) would not diliberately give her a boy's name. I understand that in other countries this is a boy's name, but here in America, it is a girl's name. I don't know where you live, though your profile says USA, but here it is a girl name. It should be listed under that, too. It SHOULD say "m&f" but it just says "m" which I just don't get.

And it doesn't just SOUND like the name Kristen/Kristin, it is that name, just a different spelling. I don't even really like those spellings for a GIRL. Well, nor do I like any of those for a boy, but that's just me.

So, um, yeah someone should really make that so it says m&f because it actually is a girl name, too.

This is definitely a girl's name. I might name a girl Christen, but NEVER would I name a boy this. Sorry guys named Christen, but I seriously think your name belongs on a girl.

Is it possible that this could be pronounced like Christain? Hayden Christensen spells his last name just like Christen, but its pronounced like Christain. So does it have to be said like Kristen?

Can't see this as a name. To me it's just a word meaning "to baptize".

I've had this name for 26 years now, and it's always struck me as a girl's name, not a boy's name. Personally, I think it is a very nice name, simple and sharp. In my case, it's pronounced Kristen, although I'm sure other pronunciations have been used with the same spelling. I've never heard of a boy named Christen, nor have I ever regarded it as a masculine name in the slightest, though I agree that it certainly should be on the site as unisex (at the very least).

While it may not be as "girly-sounding" as other feminine names, I would never consider it for a boy. [noted -ed]
