This is a beautiful name. If I name my daughter, her name will be pronounced as "CHRIS-TEE-AHN-A." I love this name. I personally chose this pronunciation for my little girl. It can also be pronounced and spelled differently as one wishes.

This is such a beautiful name. Lots of great nicknames for it and not over popular.

Christiana Anbri played the longest running Little Cosette/Little Eponine in the musical Les Miserables.

This is a very beautiful (and even somewhat exotic) name and a great alternative to the overly popular Christina. I think Christiana has an extra something that makes it that more pretty.

Christiana is the name of Christian's wife in John Bunyan's book, "Pilgrim's Progress." She becomes a pilgrim herself and makes her way to the heavenly city of Zion.

This name seems too long and overdone in English. The positive thing is that it's not Christina or Christine, those overused names. But that's not much of a reason to choose the name, now is it? How about being so original that you stay away from all these Chris names?

A very elegant sounding name. But if you name your daughter Christiana, you have to bring them up to be an elegant person. I have a friend with this name who is very hyper and doesn't think before she talks-- I don't think this name suits a person like that.

This is my stepsister's name (pronounced kris-tee-AHN-uh), only she goes by Christi. And let me tell you, she is *not* elegant! I mean, don't get me wrong, I love her to death, but everyone is talking about how this is such an "elegant" name, but when I think of Christiana, I think of a volleyball center-position MVP who is a total tomboy. I guess the name is pretty enough, but I'm really not even a fan of "Chris" names to begin with.

Christiana is the name of Ophelia’s “enemy” in Lisa Klein’s novel “Ophelia”.

(Granted, I don’t like it that much since it makes me think of her. –shudder- Otherwise, it’s, at least, a much prettier alternative to the over-popular Christina.)

I know a girl named this, I think it's pretty. She pronounces it chris-tee-ahn-uh.

I like this, but would not use it.
Pronounced like the boy name Christian.

Very pretty name. I knew a girl at school who had this name and people would always call her Christina.

This is my name, it's always been pronounced "Christi-yanna" because the "ah/aw" way sounds too snooty. Chris-ti-AH-na sounds like you wish you were royalty in my honest opinion. Everyone I tell my name to comments on how pretty it is but as it's my name I don't hear it. Hated how different it was as a child! Also, those comments about tomboys and inelegant women could easily be me. I did not suit the femininity of this name until my twenties.
