子竜のクリストファー/ クリストファーという名の子竜

Read as ”Kotatsu no Kurisutofa"/"Kurisutofa to iu na no Kotatsu"
If you want it as a title, I would recommend the first one because there was actually a story that had the similar title as the first one except that the name of the little dragon was different.
If it is going to appear in the middle of a story, the second one can also be used.
The first one literally means," Little dragon Christopher" and the second one, "A little dragon named Christopher"

I hope this helps.

Tatsunoko means dragonet. I feel the above sounds good and well for some title.

小龍クリストファー or クリストファー小龍

I guess you are making up a name for yourself, for a novel or role playing game. Assuming this context then

is the Japanese phonetic version of Christopher. You are stuck with the the phonetic version unless you want to translate it as "Carrier of Christ" which is what Christopher means, apparently. See first reference.

Could be pronounced in a variety of ways such as Shouryuu. This was Bruce Lee's name in Chinese characters (substituting for Bruce). Please see the second reference.

You can see the characters here‾leuers/prozgif-christophershouryuu.gif
