Comments for the name Crescentia

Comments for CRESCENTIA:

Pronounced cress-TSEN-tsee-ah in German. Short froms are Kreszenz and Zenzi. There are two Catholic saints by that name, martyr Saint Crescentia (died about 304 AD) and Saint Maria Crescentia Höss (1682-1744). An alternative spelling is Kreszentia, for example German politician Kreszentia Flauger (born 1966). It used to be quite popular in Catholic areas due to the saints, but it is rarely given to babies these days. Personally, I think it's a bit too much and prefer the shorter from Kreszenz.
