Famous Bearer
Personal Impression

(click a heading above to filter the comments by that type)

Famous (though fictional) bearer would be Chance (called Chauncey Gardiner), the main character of the book and movie Being There. Chance is raised in his the house of his boss all his life, doing nothing but watching TV and tending to his boss's garden. When the old man dies, Chances ventures out into the world. Alone.

Personally, I think Chance sounds more like a dog name. I know a boy named Chance.

I think Chance is an interesting name, a mysterious name and one that usually prompts the question "How did you get that name?" which usually begins an interesting conversation. It puts me in the mind of someone who has the whole world in front of them, wide open and full of chances.

Oh yes, I can see the conversation now.
"How did you get your name?"
"By chance."
I'm sorry, no offense intended. I think Chance sounds more like a guy's name, really. That's just my opinion. It'd make an interesting middle name.

The more rambunctious of the two dogs in the movie Homeward Bound bears this name.

I know someone who has twins (one boy, one girl) named Chance and Chase. Chance is the boy, and Chase is the girl. People who don't know them well always have trouble remembering who is named what, since Chance and Chase are both usually boys' names and sound similar. Chance is a good, strong-sounding boy's name, just don't use it with a sibling named Chase.

You'd need a lot of courage to name your kids this.

This name is no good. It will surely lead to bad puns, and it sounds quite bizarre on adults.

Chance is idiotic. It will lead to bad puns.

The reason why I named my son Chance is because he was so tiny and had a lot health problems at birth. So he was my chance to cuddle and nurture him hence why he is Chance.

It's nice enough, but it sounds out of date in that same weird way as Troy or Brad (AKA the way that all these -aden names will sound in twenty years). Good on a guy between the ages of forty and twenty-five, strange for a little boy.

I named one of my book characters Chance, only she is a girl. I like it. I think it's very cool for a guy and very sweet for a girl, but that's just my opinion. This is one of those names that shouldn't just be limited to one gender but for both, like Tyler, Sam, Alex, and Jordan. I can imagine a young Chance, middle-aged buisnessman Chance, and an old Chance, of both genders.

It sounds like a female name... I guess it doesn't help that my family once had a girl cat named Chance. We named her Chance because she got a second chance at life when we took her in.

Chance is the name of rapper/businessman Sean John Combs' daughter.

Just because it's on this site doesn't make it ok as a people name. This is utterly and completely a dog name!

My best friend's nephew is due in a few weeks and this will be his name! His brother's name is Cayden. I think the two names work well together. I wouldn't pick Chance for my son though, simply because of all the puns "take a Chance" etc... my given name had too many puns so I would tend to avoid names like that.

John Wayne played Sheriff John T. Chance in Rio Bravo.

I think this is a strong name for a boy. When I hear the name Chance I think of a ridiculously good looking guy who don't take sh** from no one lol, and besides that it's uncommon which is a bonus!

This is the name of that brown and white pitbull from the movie Homeward bound. I think this would make an okay nickname for a guy.
