Pronunciation question

I have a question for native English speakers, might be a bit silly but I'm curious.

How would you pronounce the name Kristine? I always thought it would be read like Christine (/kri'sti:n/), but recently I've been told it's just as natural to pronounce it with the schwa at the end, like /kri'sti:nə/ (bit different from Christina, I believe).

It sounds a bit strange to me, so I'd like to know what you think :)
