About This Name


Christoffel is a Dutch variant of Christopher. Christopher is an Old Greek name that is derived from the Greek word “kristos” which means leader. The addition of the “pher” at the end meant to bear or to follow. This is where the different meanings of the name came from, which is “bearing Christ” or “to follow the leader". The name is associated with Christians because for a long time after the death of Christ, Christians bore the name to signify that they were close to their leader, Christ.
