A very rare name in America,
but popular in France and Germany.

A feminine form of the Christian.

Pronounced like 'Christy-Anne' for all
the retards who fuck it up all the time

3.
A female name common in Europe, especially Germany.

It is a variant of "Christian" and means "follower of Christ."

The correct pronunciation of name is "Christy-AH-neh." When a German word ends in the letter "e", it makes a "eh" or "ah" sound. Yes, I agree, it is very frustrating having this name in the US because it is always mispronounced.

Christiane Amanpour is a famous news correspondent for CNN. She, however, pronounces her first name "Christy-ahn."
My maid-of-honor is named Christiane.
