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!💙
