This is my best friend's name and she hates it. I'm not very fond of it either, but she is a great namesake. The best girl in the world. Also her middle name is Amanda and I think those two names go nicely together.

I think Kristen is an okay name, nothing special, but I do like the crystalline sound of it. However, it might be confusing due to the many similar names: I have friends called Kristen, Kristin, Kirsten, and Kirstie, and you can imagine what it would look like if a little Kristen had classmates who bore any of these names.

Kristen is a name for my protagonist of the videogame called Mass Effect. It sounds pretty and delicate but also has a very strong vibe in the name. Oh, Kristen Stewart has been in a movie as a soldier protagonist once. She did a really good job in that film.

I used to like this name a lot until I realized that KRISTEN is an anagram of STINKER. Now I can't even meet a Kristen without thinking about how her name can be rearranged. That's not a problem for Kristin (with an "i"), but I never really liked that spelling.

I would love to be named Kristen, I like the "e" better than the "i" because it makes it look better and that is how it sounds. It is a very soothing name, and very pretty.

My name is Kristen, and while I like it I get called Kirsten, Kiersten, Christian, Christine, people don't even TRY to pronounce it it seems.
I like that I was always the only Kristen, while there were 10 Brittany's and Ashley's in school.

Kristen Schaal, absolutely hilarious comedienne who played the recurring role of Mel on HBO's Flight Of the Conchords. She is also probably the only not-despicable bearer of this name.

This name seems like a flaky, trendy, teenager-y name. It's not very pretty or feminine, and looks better as Kristin. Plus, spelling it KristIN shakes off some of the dreadful Kristen Stewart connection.

I've always enjoyed this name, it's a very upbeat, spunky and pretty name in my opinion. Had a best friend in 4th grade by this name, and a dear friend gave her daughter this name except using a "y" in place of the "i". Lovely girl with lovely name!

I have a friend named Kristen and she loves to talk and is very funny. I guess when I think of someone with this name I think of someone who is happy and loves life.

Kristen Kreuk plays Lana Lang on that awesome TV show called Smallville.

Kristen Chenoweth is a fabulous Broadway star from Oklahoma who is probably known the best for originating the part of Glinda in the popular show WICKED.

This is my name! Hey other Kristen's out there, you're not alone! I used to be the only Kristen everywhere until about Middle School, then I met two others. I used to dislike my name a lot (I like the classy names - Elizabeth, Catherine, Isabelle, Adelaide) but it is growing on me. I think I will like it in the end. My friends always come up with the greatest nicknames for me (Kristy, Krisy-ten, Krissy) but I prefer just plain Kristen.

I thought my name was spunky and unusual, until I met 6 other Kristens with different spellings. I like "Kristen" over the other forms, but I may be biased.

I always thought that my name, Kristen was Scandinavian. I was wrong. I also thought it was rather original until 3 Kristens with various spellings showed up in my Grade 1 class. I really like how it is spelled with an e, makes it seem more rounded.

My sister's name is Kristen. I personally don't like this name. I think Kristina is a much prettier name.

Kristen is a very pretty name (and I'm not being biased, even though it is my name). You don't meet very many people with this name, and usually others spell it Kristin, but I prefer the 'e' instead of the 'i'.
