Popularity

OF THE BOY NAME TRISTIAN

Tristian first appeared on the American masculine naming charts in 1995. The name immediately increased to low-moderate points of usage on the charts before retracting again down to low levels. The name saw another bump in 2006 and now seems to be doing “okay”. It’s not popular by any means, and it’s certainly not very familiar since it’s too new and too underused. The pronunciation doesn’t flow super well; it’s a little clunky and uncomfortable. Is it pronounced TRIS-tee-un, TRIST-yun or TRIS-chin? We’re not even sure.
