The name Kristoffer is a Scandinavian variant of the name Christopher. Christopher originates in Greek, popularized in the early 11th century. The current spelling is directly derived from Χριστοφορος (Christophoros) which means "To bear Christ".

The history of the name is ironic. It was used as a pseudonymic title rather than as a given name. Early Christians referred to those who supported Christianity as Christopher. However, because of the words the name are derived from, specifically φερω (phero) the name can be read to mean something entirely different from the commonly held definition. Phero ("to bear or offer" )also took on, and is the basis for, the English homonym word "to bear" meaning to tolerate (albeit a much longer linguistic route was taken for the second definition to enter English). Thus Christopher can mean "to tolerate Christ" rather than "to offer Christ".

The spelling Kristoffer is common in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, and some Germanic dialects. Similar spellings are found in Cyrillic/Slavic languages, such as; Russian, Hungarian, Latvian, Bulgarian, etc.

Kristoffer is commonly shortened to Kris, Krist, Kristoff, and Toffer.
"Kristoffer was a kind and gentle man."

He is someone that just sits beside you and is like hey, and then you just look him into the eyes wanting to stab him everyday and could stab him anytime if you just had the chance. He says he's straight when you know he's not but you're too tired to hear about it and he acts innocent but he's honestly a BITCH.
Me: Hey, where's Kristoffer?
Friend: We don't talk about who shall not be named.

A multi-sexual-predator-fruit that lives in the south of Sweden.

If you see one, for the love of god do not approach it! It will try to have sexual intercourse with you. Simply Say:
"Jag är från Norrland"
And he will quickly run away frightened.
