From a Saint, to George Elliot’s 1859 novel Adam Bede, to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to the “Virgin vs. Chad” memes, Chad has been a favorite of many- and it’s easy to see the appeal. It’s nothing too silly or pretentious. Reminds me of this ski instructor I once knew back in the early 00’s.

Vickster Says:


The fact that I know a guy named Chad and kind of like his name is definitely a byproduct of us both being born in 1992.

To change genders I came up with Chaydienne (a French looking name). I will think up a better one. I'm fine with the hate on this Name, my husband & I could not have chosen a better Name for our son, Chad!💙
