The name that actually means 'first name', Christian is one of our most noble and graceful boys' names. Most popular in Scandinavian countries, it has been the name of kings of Denmark since the 15th century. One of our best-loved Christians is the fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen, author of 'The Ugly Duckling'. A regal name, it still shortens to the adorable Kit and of course Chris.
