Gristlah /grɪ́stlə/ (female)
The delicate autumn beauty of Christa is not entirely lost in this sinewy variation, though it does admittedly take a back seat to the thick, turkey-neck chewiness that is this name’s showcase feature. An instant earworm from the first time one hears it, this is a name that really gets stuck between the teeth. While a vocal minority of critics objects that the name sounds “gross,” we do not share this opinion (and neither do the over 1500 parents that chose this name for their female babies this quarter).
“Gristlah’s been gnawing on that bone for over an hour.”
