Chris is short for either Christopher or Christina. Christopher means "bearing Christ inside." Christine or Christina means "follower of Christ." As far as "urban slang" goes: kid who is always up to party and have a good time.

Its not a greek word/name so it doesnt have a meaning in greek. If you can say that it is a combination of chris-elle, chris is derived from either christ (χριστός) which means ''the anointed one'' [the name Chris means that] or from χρυσό (chriso) meaning golden.
