In my family we have Christian who was born to a Jewish father and a Catholic
Italian mother(they met while he was hiding in France during WW2).

"I have screened the 153,000 Jewish burials in Vienna and can confirm
that there are no *Christof* but there is a single *Christian*:"
By your own admission, the mother was an Italian Catholic although I accept
that the son might have been brought up as Jewish.

In my family tree I have also quite a few Christina's. These are also the
descendants of a Jewish father (my grandfather's halfbrother) and a
non-Jewish wife (Christina).

They had a daughter, Christina, who was married in church.

I clearly wouldn't draw any conclusions on that basis that Christina was a
Jewish name.

Indeed such information as far as I am concerned would obviously suggest
their degree of remove >from Judaism.

(There is also a Christelle - son Chris)

But I wouldn't be so bold as to suggest that there was never a Jew with such
a name.
