Were did the word Christian come from?

I'm not sure if anyone really knows for sure... But Acts 11:26; may help.

The term was already popularized by the time Acts 26:28; and 1 Pet 4:16; were written.
Good morning to everyone. I found that the term Christian joins a Greek word ("Christos"), which translates a Hebrew concept ("Messiah"), with a Latin ending irons )-Ian's), illistrating the widening Christian mission.
