Meaning of the name Christopher

Hugely popular English name, Latinized form of the Greek name (Χριστόφορος) [Christophoros] denotation - "Christ-bearer; Christian; one who carrying the Cross".


Saint Christopher is a Saint venerated by Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians, listed as a martyr killed in the reign of the 3rd century Roman emperor Decius (reigned 249-251).
The Eastern Orthodox Church venerates Christopher on May 9. The Tridentine Calendar allowed a commemoration of Saint Christopher on 25 July only in private Masses. This restriction was lifted later (see General Roman Calendar as in 1954). Although the Roman Catholic Church still approves devotion to him, listing him in the Roman Martyrology among the Saint venerated on 25 July, Pope Paul VI removed his feast day from the Roman Catholic calendar of Saints in his 1969 motu proprio Mysterii Paschalis. At that time the church declared that this commemoration was not of Roman tradition, in view of the relatively late date (about 1550) and limited manner in which it was accepted into the Roman calendar, but his feast is still observed locally.
