My parents named me Tristy and my two closest friends from school (in a very small town) were both named Trista!

Tristy has become popular and I'm meeting more people every year from all over who have my name and spell it the same way.

So I'm curious about the meaning and history of the name ending with Y instead A.

Trista is a very pretty name. I like it because it is different.

I'm not a fan. I prefer Tristana or Tristessa.

I'd like this name more if it didn't remind me of the word "tryst"--usually synonymous with "rendezvous" or an arranged meeting in general, except tryst usually has sexual connotations.

This name is really growing on me. I actually like it now. It's a million times better than Tristan is for a girl.

I find this name really cool and pretty, and I'll give the people naming their daughters Trista credit for using this feminine form of the name instead of Tristan, as there are parents who name their daughters Tristan, and I don't like that. It's just that the name might begin to sound dull and lose its egde and glamour factor if it becomes overused. Just don't move to Sweden if you name your daughter this, as the word 'trist' is a word for dreary, boring, miserable things.

"Trista" is the Spanish feminine adjective for "sad."

Actually in Spanish the adjective is "triste" whether the noun is masculine or feminine. "Trista" is not a word in Spanish.

I think this name is better for a girl than Tristan.
