I don't like this name, but it became trendy during the Renaissance when everyone started naming their kids after Columbus.

Cristobal is actually a very marvelous name, because, it sounds holy. A good name for a monk.

When I say this name, it comes out sounding very similar to "Crystal Ball". I am most likely pronouncing it wrong... but I have a feeling that many people will try and pronounce it the same way.

Cristóbal Balenciaga Eizaguirre was a Spanish Basque fashion designer and the founder of the Balenciaga fashion house. He had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as "the master of us all" by Christian Dior and as "the only couturier in the truest sense of the word" by Coco Chanel, who continued "The others are simply fashion designers". He continues to be revered as the supreme deity of the European salons. On the day of his death, in 1972, Women's Wear Daily ran the headline "The king is dead".
