I like it. But I like the Krista spelling better. I love Krista. I would use it if my uncle didn't marry a girl named Krista. She's a lovely woman but not related to me so I probably wouldn't name a kid after her even though we are very close.

Sharon Christa McAuliffe. She was in the Challenger when it exploded. She was part of the "teacher in space" project.

I think it sounds awkward and incomplete. Christina is already a shortened form of Christiana, so Christa is a shortened, shortened form, which is too short for my taste. On the plus side, it sounds fresh, like ice crackling in sparkling lemonade on a hot day. I knew a Christa. She was nice, if a little ditzy. Still, if you want a really cute name, go with Christabel.

Christa Pike is the first female to be put on death row in Tennessee. But I still like the name CHRISTA.

This name is also used frequently in The Netherlands; I myself even happen to know a middle-aged Dutch woman with this name.

I can't decide whether I prefer it spelled Christa or Crista. I have seen both.

I think that my name is quite unique. I like it.

I personally think that Christabel is a far better form of this name. Christa can be a nickname instead, as people automatically shorten it.

It's a really akward-sounding name, if you want to give your girl a Christian name, name her Christina.
