Today I was at the grocery store, and one of the clerks was named Christiba. Yes, like Christina with a b. What do you think?

I don't see the appeal or find it attractive at all! But thats my opinion, no offense intended.

Sounds like someone trying to say Christina through a very stuffy nose. I don't think it's attractive at all.

Haha, that's what I was thinking. Or maybe Christina mashed up with Bathsheba?? Weird.

I agree with all of you, the name sounds weird and unattractive. I remember when I went to the store the clerks name was Ballerina. What do you think of that?

I'm afraid I don't like Christiba. I can see the attempt to making a pretty name, but I can also see the failure of not reaching that.

Ballerina. Hm, I think that if there wasn't such a common definition and use of it, it would sound like a pretty name with the soft consonant sounds and ending in an a. Even if it had more appeal like that though, I don't think I would like it. Sometimes I find names a little too princessy and I think this would fall under that category.

Ballerina? I agree with Smile completely on this name. Some word names are cute, in my opinion, but I don't know how I feel about Ballerina.

I guess it could be considered an occupation name? I don't think it's that much different than Sailor.
I had a friend named Valerie growing up, and a lot of people thought her name was Ballerina when she first introduced herself.

Completely agree. Ballerina just sounds a bit...weird IMO.
Sailor is cute,I guess.
