Chris is a short form of various names including Christopher, Christian, Christina, Christine, and Christos. Unlike these names, however, it does not indicate the person's gender, although it is much more common for males to have this name than it is for females, due to the increased popularity of Chrissy and Christy among younger females. Chris is also used as a name in its own right, although it is not as common. It is the preferred form of the full name of such notable individuals as Chris Tucker and Chris Penn.

The word is also part of phrases, including Tropical Storm Chris, Ruth's Chris Steak House, and many more which refer to notable people, places, and things. For a list of these, see .
