The obvious choices are "Chris" or "Tina". Personally, I've always like the name Bob Wink

Women can use the name Chris too. Same with other names like Tony/Toni, Lesley/Leslie to name but two.

With Cristina, you can change it to Christy, Christi, Chris(This is a name that can be used by either sexes) There's lots of ways to spell Chris as well. Many girls Spell it Kris, or Criss to give a more feminine feeling.
