Christina

Feminine form of Christian and a name of a 17th century Swedish queen who was interested in the arts and philosophy and gave up her crown to become a Roman Catholic. Earlier popularity in the 19th century attributed to famous English poet Christina Rossetti, and long after her death, feminine scholars began recovering her work in the 1970s, making her name and poetry well known once again. It peaked in the 1970s and 1980s in the top 20 also because of American supermodel Christie Brinkley and tennis star Chris Evert, who both bear a variation of the name. It has become a more recent trend with its "y" spelling and the influence of pop singer Christina Aguilera when she first captured audiences in 1998. , Christ-Bearer
