This is my name and I have mixed feelings about it. I like that it honors my Swedish heritage and fits with my last name, but at times I've thought it was a harsh-sounding name. Also, it gets misspelled frequently (most often as Kristen) and that drives me nuts!

Never thought it was a real name. I find it very uncommon and a little weird.

Kristin is my name, and my mom wanted to spell it Christine after her cousin, in honour of her Franco/Algerian heritage. My dad being Norwegian wanted the Scandinavian spelling, being Kristin. The pronunciation is supposed to be Kris-teen, it just sounds melodic when being pronounced in Scandinavian countries as well as France.
What drives me nuts is that Anglo-saxons just have a very rough way of saying it and it sounds more like Krisss-tiin. If you're going to go with that version and live somewhere, where people have simple names, keep it simple is my thought! With that said, I wouldn't change my name for the world.

Kristin is my name, and I was given it to honor my Norwegian heritage. It's the name of the protagonist in Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavransdatter novels, which she won a Nobel Prize for in the 1920s - it's historical fiction set in medieval Scandinavia. In Norway, Kristin is the feminine spelling and Kristen is masculine, though in the States Kristen has gotten to be the more common spelling (though it was pretty even when I was born). My relatives in Norway pronounce my name pretty similar to the way we say it in the States, which is KRIS-tin (though the "r" is sort of rolled in Norwegian, kind of like a soft "d"), not like Christine (which is how people said it when I lived in France). I like my name - the only downside is how frequently people misspell it, when I prefer Kristin over any other spelling by far!

Kristin is also pronounced KRIS-tin. I love this name (pronounced KRIS-tin), and spelled this way, with an "i". Kristin, is much, much prettier than with an "e", Kristen. I also love Kristin Kreuk. She is in such cool, offbeat stuff, and she is one of the most beautiful actresses out there.

All in all, I really love my name. It's fun and modern, but can still sound serious. The only thing I don't like is how many people spell it Kristen by mistake.
