Are Latter-day Saints Christian?

I spent a lot of time in my youth defending that we are Christians. As I got older I started to think about why I wanted that title. Obviously I wanted it known that I believed in Christ. I thought a lot as I was told that I worshipped a different Christ and didn't qualify for the title of Christian.

Has the word Christian become empty? It seems that anyone can define what a Christian is, even though many that deny us the title say that all that is required to be saved is to say that you believe in Christ.

What does everyone think, is Christian a good term to use? We call ourselves saints. Do we need the extra title of Christian?
