    This is what Wikipedia says: Christy is a

    given name meaning elegant, graceful, beautiful, princess. The name Christie originated from Italy in 1222. Ireland found the name in 1345, and it took on other connotations, such as angel and lovely. Cool, I like it :)

    My name is Chantal, it means song.

    It's also an uncanny coincidence because as my real life unfolded I had lived out the song of songs in the bible, and I understand what music is really about, if I wanted to I could become a musician if I wanted to because I have the gift. I am a closet rockstar.

    Alexandra- greek from alexo(= keep off,

    defend) + andras(= man). So this can mean "protector of men" or "fighter of men". Like, in a battle or something, you keep away the enemies to protect your own people, that's what I was told by a teacher once and I like it :)
