Can Kris be a boy name? ?

Im wanting to name our son Kris because my girlfriend and I both happen to have K names so we were wanting to name our children with k names. I suggested Kris but she said that Kris with that spelling is a girls name. Can it be a boys name or should we go with something else?

    I think Ch- is simply angelicized, whilst K- is more Germanic/Danish/Scandinavian. Kris is perfectly acceptable for a boy, a short form of Kristof or Krist. There are also lots of other K names for boys: Karsten, Karson, Kaden, Keegan, Kiernan, Kelson, Kole, Keller, Kyler, Keenan, Kiersey, Kamden, Kason

    You should give him the full name Kristopher then and just call him Kris. It will eliminate confusion later.

    I know two lads with that spelling, I'd say it's never a girls name myself. If a girl is called Christine i can see how it can be shortened as a nickname.
