Most people I've met in Spain (where I'm from) have a hard time spelling it, I always have to show an ID or write it down. Same viceversa, if they've only seen it written, they'll pronounce it Ch (as in chocolate)-risto-per. Other than that, I like my name.

Too common, but I like it b/c it is the only name my Mom wanted for me, b/c of the biblical meaning & she is past on now, so it is more special to me now
