"battle warrior"

Chad Origin and Meaning

The name Chad is a boy's name of English origin meaning "battle warrior".

Despite all the "hanging," "dangling," and "pregnant" chad jokes of the 2000 election, this saint's name and remnant of the Brad-Tad era didn't get a boost in popularity. But Chad still holds some surfer-boy appeal for a number of modern parents.
