It’s not hard to see where this name comes from…and would you be surprised that it’s especially popular among Christians? Christopher stems from the Greek Christophoros, which breaks down into “Christ” (christos) and “to bear” (pherein). The name was at first understood metaphorically, meaning someone who carries Christ with him at all times. The legend of St. Christopher, which tells of a saint who carried the child Christ over a river, led to a more literal interpretation and St. Christopher’s title became the patron saint of travelers. In the US, the name took a huge jump from the 1930s (average ranking 333) to the ’50s (47), and peaked in the ’70s and ’80s at an average ranking of two. Since then it’s remained in the top 10, and still feels appropriate for both a child and adult. Consider the nicknames Topher or Toph to freshen it up.
From the Late Greek name Χριστοφορος (Christophoros) meaning "bearing Christ", derived from Χριστος (Christos) combined with φερω (phero) "to bear, to carry". Early Christians used it as a metaphorical name, expressing that they carried Christ in their hearts. In the Middle Ages, literal interpretations of the name's etymology led to legends about a Saint Christopher who carried the young Jesus across a river. He has come to be regarded as the patron saint of travellers. As an English given name, Christopher has been in general use since the 15th century. In Denmark it was borne by three kings (their names are usually spelled Christoffer), including the 15th-century Christopher of Bavaria who also ruled Norway and Sweden. Other famous bearers include Italian explorer Christopher Columbus (1451-1506), English playwright Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593), and the fictional character Christopher Robin from A. A. Milne's 'Winnie-the-Pooh' books.
