It is an extremely rare name for a girl. It was derived from the name Maria Cristina. It's true origin is still unknown but the name's most often used for Spanish girls and Filipinas. It is believed that the influence of the Spaniards to the Filipino people during the 18th century caused this to happen.

Its origin name, Maria Cristina, is also famous in the Philippines. There's even a waterfall named Maria Cristina in the Mindanao (southern part of the Philippines).

Some people even believed that it came from two of the most sacred names in history. Maria from Mama Mary, Mother of Jesus. And Cris from Christ.
