Christa

This punchy variation of Christina is probably most associated with Christa McAuliffe, who was set to be the first teacher in space on the Challenger space shuttle. Despite her tragic death, her legacy lives on as schools, planetariums, and education centers bear her name. Because of her, Christa is forever linked with learning and exploration. A perfect name for a baby that’s reaching for the stars.
