Add Usage: Norwegian, Finnish, German

Pronounced: KREHS-du (Danish), KREE-stehr (Finnish), KRIS-tər (English)

Meaning: Scandinavian diminutive of CHRISTIAN.
Christer Lipovac is a Swedish footballer, of Croatian descent, who plays for Karlslunds IF as a forward.
Swedish author Steig Larsson used this name for his character, Christer Malm - a magazine art director and designer, in his internationally-renowned trilogy [The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest].
I don't get why Christer isn't more popular with people's pencheon for combining names, and with there being so many Christophers and Tylers out there, Christer seems like a natural combination that is easy to spell and pronounce, and it is something different.
Why does it say that this is a form of Christian, but on Krister it says a form of Kristoffer? It's the same name, just Ch or K spelling. It does come from Christian though. Chrille is the common nickname in Sweden.
