The name Channel is a girl's name . Channel and is often added to user-created lists like Bodies of Water: Lake, River and Brook and discussed in our forums with posts like "Names on NB that make you go WOW!".
From the experts:
Did you really mean to name your child Channel, as in the body of water? Like, you know, the English Channel? Or were you going for the last name of the French designer Chanel, with a soft "sh" sound at the beginning and the emphasis on the last syllable? If so, we recommend sticking with the Chanel spelling.
