Kirsten is a pretty name. It seems though that most girls named Kirsten are brats when they're young. Hopefully the Kirsten I know will turn out pretty cool -- someday.

My sister's name and she pronounces it KER-stin.

In my experience, Kirsten is mispronounced quite often. Some people say "Keer-sten" while others say "Kur-sten." So it is very common for a Keer-sten to be called Kur-sten and vice versa. This can be slightly annoying, but I've learned to deal with it. Just as long as no one calls me Kristen (which also happens a lot, and is more annoying than the mispronunciation, because my name is clearly NOT Kristen!).

I think Kirsten is a very pretty name, not fadish which makes it even nicer.

I think that the name Kirsten is quite harsh but it is femimine and can suit lots of people.

I knew of one Kirsten and she pronounced it KUR-stin. Then the other person I met one day her name was Kiersten and pronounced it Keer-sten.

Kirsten is the name that most women in Denmark have. Earlier it was almost overused.

Love this name---and both pronunciations.

Name of the moment, I predict the next Jennifer. Shame really. Though personally I know know one Kirsten, and she is lovely. Hollwood names like Kirsten (Dunst) and Keira (Knightly) are rapidly growing in popularity.

This is my name, and I don't really like it. Either I get compared to Kirsten Dunst, or my name gets mispronounced! [I pronounce it ker-sten, by the way.]

It's a pretty and cool name despite the meaning. It doesn't sound very nice with the KUR-sten pronunciation, though.

My name is Kirsten and it is numerously said wrong. A LOT of people say my name wrong like KEER-STEN or they call me Kristen! I feel very strongly against this. I love the name Kirsten though as it is not a common name. Well, I know three people in my whole entire school with the name Kirsten, and one of them is me! This name is not original and is femininely passionate and lovely!

Kirsten means "Little Follower of the Lord."

I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not at first but it's kind of grown on me. I prefer the pronunciation kur-sten.
-- Saffine Grace  1/5/2009
I think the Kier-sten pronunciation is much prettier. Kur-sten makes me think of "curse".

My dad is Danish and named me Kirsten and that side of the family pronounces it 'KYEER-sten' (the 'ky' sound like the 'cu' sound in 'cute' almost). Everyone else calls me 'kur-stin' or *cringe* 'kristen'. I prefer it said like kyeersten because I find it to be much less harsh & masculine sounding.

My name is Kirsten, and mine is a Danish name, pronounced Keersten. I hate being called 'kursten'. It sounds so ugly to me. I love my name though, it is fairly unique, and couldn't imagine being called anything else!

I used to like this name, but every time I say the name it makes my throat hurt! It's almost like it's a tongue twister name!

Years ago I knew a Kirsten who pronounced her name "Share-sten". I thought the name was beautiful and still do. So far on this site I only see one other person who mentions this pronunciation.
-- skycruiser  4/14/2011
I really like it, in any pronunciation. I hate that it's getting popular, and that it's so close to Kristin, but it's still a good, strong name for a girl.

My name is Kirsten. I introduce myself as 'CURSE-ten'. If I wanted to be called 'KERs-tin' My name would be Kierstin.
-- Cuss10  2/7/2012
I like this name pronounced both ways I guess, although I have to say I definitely prefer keer-sten. Its much prettier and classier than kur-sten... That kind of sounds like someone mispronouncing Kristen.
