This name is more commonly spelled Kirsten, and incorrectly pronounced KEER-stin instead of KUR-stin.

Very beautiful name, I prefer this spelling instead of Kirsten. I only knew one of person with this name and she pronounced it KUR-stin.

Oh, such a pretty name! I never noticed until I saw it by coincidence!

This is similar and probably related to the name Kjirstin, which is my name. And it is pronounced either KEER-stin or KUR-stin, depending on whether it is Scottish or Scandinavian usage.

As a proud bearer of the name Kirstin for over 40 years, I can say with confidence that the pronuciation KEER-stin is certainly considered correct!

My name is Kirstin, and I pronounce it KUR-stin. Almost every person I meet calls me Kristin, and every person who attempts to write my name always either spells it Kirsten or Kristen. Only my friends and family actually know how to correctly pronounce and spell it. However, I actually really like my name. I love the fact that it is very uncommon, and I think it sounds beautiful. Given the chance, I would not trade my name for any other.

This is my own name and I've always known it to be pronounced Kur-stin in the UK not Keer-stin which I think perhaps is American sounding. I'm biased but I love it and would not change it for the world. I was always told it was Scandinavian but I'm half Scottish so it could be either. I much prefer the 'in' ending to 'en' and it annoys me no end when people shorten it to Kirsty!.

I think it must be fairly uncommon as I'm the only one I know with this name.
