kristÓf

FORM OF:
christopher
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
KHRī́ō ‎-TOS / KHRīSTóS PHéRō / FéREIN > KHRISTóPHOROS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
KHRī́ō ‎(χρῑ́ω) -TOS ‎(-τος) KHRīSTóS ‎(χρῑστός) PHéRō ‎(φέρω) FéREIN (φέρειν) KHRISTóPHOROS ‎(Χριστόφορος)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Khristóphoros ‎(Χριστόφορος)”, composed of two elements: “khrī́ō ‎(χρῑ́ω) -tos ‎(-τος) khrīstós ‎(χρῑστός)” (Messiah or Christ, an epithet of Jesus of Nazareth, to be rubbed on, used as ointment or salve) plus “phérō ‎(φέρω) férein (φέρειν)” (bring, bear, carry). In turn, the name means “Christ-bearer, the one who bears Christ (in his soul)”. The name originates in the Christian legend of St. Christopher. As a first name, Christopher has been in use since the 15th century. The meaning of the name suggested the legend of St. Christopher carrying the Christ child across the water. The name, frequently cited as religious and even zealous in nature, has found modern popularity in part due to historical figures. With the European exploration of the Americas following the navigation of Christopher Columbus, the name retained its reverent stature but allowed for its removal from purely religious uses and distinction.

A person with name-number 8 is ambitious, confident, practical and has a great ability to execute plans. They are achievers and seek to reach the top of their field through hard work.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

At the base of the skull or Cerebellum and is also found to be linked to the causal chakra just above the crown chakra to the left in the etheric body. This center enables the individual to achieve advanced out-of-body projection, etheric projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom. I use the word spiritual here because these abilities and ideas are larger than the self and the earth and is were the ability of remote viewing resides.

Color meaning:

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
