I LOVE this name! This is a totally cute name for a boy.

This could also be a feminine name, but I think it is better on a boy.

A girl I know named her son *Chase* and all I can say is, it makes me think of a dog running after a stick that's just been thrown. Methinks it's much better as a surname.

My son is named Chase and it fits him very well as he is a very active fellow. The phrase "chasing Chase" is a frequent one in our household. ;)

My friend is named Alexa Chase, and she goes by Chase. I think Alexa is prettier and she wants people to call her that now, but everyone's already used to calling her Chase, haha.

I like this name for both a girl and a boy. It's so cute and different! They sound like a fun lil troublemaker. tee-hee =)

I have always liked the sound of the name Chase. For me it is a total boys name.

It's adorable for a little boy, but I also know a few hot guys with this name, and it totally works.

I love this name, I named my guinea pig this. Mainly because I was reading a book with a character named Sunchaser in it, and I thought that was really cool. So his real name is Sunchaser, but I call him Chase. ^-^
And also because when he was a baby he was always running away from me, so I had to Chase him. :P.

Love the name Chase! This is our future son's name. He will join sisters Callista and Sienna. I think Chase is a prefect choice since it's sophisticated and simple. It's strong, but smooth sounding.

I adore this name for a boy!

Chase! Come back here!
This name is hilarious.
arrowhead909  7/2/2007
I love this name. I think it's really nice. And I love it for a boy, or for a girl. I think it sounds nice on both genders.
xHOWTOSAVEALiFE  8/21/2007
It's a word to me. And how are you going to tell Chase to stop running around in the house?
SMHRS  10/30/2007
I love this name! It just sounds so strong and handsome.
kellybelly33  12/12/2007
I named my second son Chase. To me it is charming for a small boy and very masculine for when he gets older.
HeatherCarpenter  3/10/2008
As a surname, Dr. Robert Chase from "House". He is mostly (if not always) called by his surname.
FMRadio  3/24/2008
I think this would be a good name if it wasn't used so much, and I think this should never be used for girls just because it isn't very girly and it doesn't sound gentle like girl's names should.
Golfnut  3/28/2008
This is a name for little boys and immature frat boys, not for grown-ups. The name sounds corny on anyone past the age of 15, quite frankly, and it's hard to imagine someone very intelligent named Chase. A man with this name might have to struggle for credibility.
slight night shiver  4/20/2008
Another variant of this name is Chace, pronounced the same way but doesn't look so much like the word.

In the children's TV show, Zoey 101, Zoey's love interest is called Chase Matthews.
00Jayd-Dani  6/10/2008
This is now one of my favorite names. I personally prefer it for a younger brother. I know a kid named Chase and I can definitely see it still fitting him when he's older.
Tyrelle  8/5/2008
It's cute and playful I guess, and a little bit different, but it sounds too preppy and yuppy to me, personally. It sounds like the name of a half-wit baby-face teen heartthrob. The linebacker on the varsity football team, maybe. Too cutsey. For some reason, I think it's kind of cool for a girl though -- kind of in the same vein as Bennett, Baily, Madison, etc.

Such a sexy name. Even if it is also a verb.

francesca_milano  3/14/2009
I like the name Chase, for a dog. For a person? Unless it's a surname, not so much. Would make for a good stage name though.
aymzie  9/11/2009
I find it too popular to use for a first name, but it's a great middle name for a boy.
Curlytop78  9/29/2009
In the world of sports, Chase Utley of the Phillies baseball team is a very famous bearer, and he is THE Man. Serious, dedicated, and calm under pressure. To me, this name implies a cool athleticism.
kal  11/2/2009
My 4 year old daughter is named Chase. We chose this name because we really thought we were having a boy & it's a family name on my husband's side. It is his mother's maiden name, my husband's middle name & both my brother in law's middle names. When we found out we were having a girl, I wanted to name her Lucienne (my grandmother's name) Chase but my husband already had his heart set on Chase. Although she's always mistaken for a boy until people see her, I love her name. It's unique & because we didn't choose it due to the trend of naming girls boyish surnames right now, it's meaningful as well! It fits her so well, we call her Chasey. Also, there is a female supreme court justice (in CT where we are from) named Chase! In a time when people are naming their kids "Pilot Inspektor" Chasey is adorable, and meaningful to us!

Another spelling is Chace, Chace Crawford bears this name but his full name is Christopher Chace Crawford.
Alora  12/31/2009
My name is Chase and I'm a girl. I know another girl with the same name as well, so it's not that uncommon. I quite like it, though as a kid, the whole "chasing Chase" thing did get really annoying. Also, people have a tendency to misspell my name (I know, weird. People always want to spell it with a c instead of an s), or even give me a new name. "Hi, my name is Chase." "Oh, hello Tracy!" Anyways, if you seriously like the name, use it. It really doesn't matter if it's supposed to be a "boys name".
― Anonymous User  12/31/2009
This name is pathetic because it's a verb. It's also getting too popular. And it ceases to be cute after age five. It's a little kid's name in my opinion - not very mature-sounding.
bananarama  1/10/2010
I've always thought Chase is short for Charles, but I guess not.
― Anonymous User  11/3/2010
I don't like it for a boy because it is so, so popular but I adore it for a girl. It's so cute, spunky, and slightly different for a girl. I've never personally met a female Chase myself but I know of a little girl named Chaselyn.
― Anonymous User  1/7/2011
Chase is a nickname turned surname and most recently given a given name, originating from the French word Chasseur, meaning "hunter". (Chasseur was derived from the Old French word Chacier, so variant spelling Chace is legitimate.) The name Chasseur was given to regiments of French light infantry and cavalry troops which were created in the mid 1700's. Before this time, it was used in light of hunting parties, and the name was strictly given to men, as women did not hunt. It is similar and comparable to English occupational surnames and also the name Jäger/Jagger, which is the German word for "hunter" and was also the name given to German light infantry around the same time Chasseur came into military use for the French.

All it does is remind me of comedian Chevy Chase and the Chase Manhattan Bank.

Not to mention Kiss Chasey ...

I can't take it seriously, sorry.
keepitreal  1/29/2011
The name Chase is cool, maybe because I knew a boy called Chase who was cool.
― Anonymous User  3/12/2011
"Chase"... It is not a name that grows with the bearer. Parents who have decided upon this name and myself much have horribly different opinions an views as far as how it sounds, means, usage, and the origin. Not only is it truly derived from a surname that was originally a word (and still is), it has been seen as a suitable dog name for how long? Would you name your daughter "Frufru"? "Chase" is a name that has no professionality, no veins that would catch a prospective boss' eye. Chase Smith-- a lawyer? Chase Ferris-- a doctor?

Please choose a name that will not harm your son's success-- choose one that will aid, and that he will thank you for later in life.
Francesca  4/27/2011
Francesca, might I alert you to the fact that not all men grow up to be lawyers and doctors? Aviators, singers, writers, musicians, actors, baseball players, construction workers, etc. In my firm opinion, a doctor or lawyer could easily be called Chase, and I would take him seriously, because when conducting business, I don't consider one's name to have any influence on his work.

I, for one, consider Chase a good, firm name, strong and manly.
Strangak  6/14/2013
How silly.
FlakyMatt  6/23/2011
To all the people that are saying how it's a "dog's name" a "verb" or "just plain silly on a human", come on, have a little imagination. It's a cool, funky name, for boy or girl, though personally I only know boys named Chase. In fact, one of my best friends is named Chase, and he is definitely an intelligent, mature guy. I can definitely see him being taken seriously when he's older, too. So if you like the name, use it. It's a good one.

I've known two Chases, one boy and one girl. I've always wondered what this name meant, but I thought it wouldn't actually be related to the English verb "to chase," which I now know it is. A cute name for a girl might be CHASE-HOPE or CHASE-FAITH or anything else one might Chase, like CHASE-FELICITY. An absolutely cruel name for a boy would be CONSTANT CHASE! Hahaha...
Meapergirl  12/12/2011
Chase for a boy- not a big fan... Chase for a girl- absolutely intolerable.

This 'name' was actually given to 84 baby GIRLS in the US in 2012.
Oohvintage  7/18/2013
To me, the name Chase places a negative assumption on a girl or boy that they are always on the run and have problems focusing. The name also won't age well on a boy and especially not on a girl (I can't imagine anyone past 15 years old named this!)... Iike a past poster said, people named Chase "will always have to prove their credibility." Also, the name is way too masculine for a girl. Maybe I would like Chase more if it was a nickname, but it is too childish to be on its own. Overall, Chase is a very unintelligent and unprofessional name for a human, but it works GREAT for a pet name!
― Anonymous User  7/10/2014
This name is adorable, on a MALE CHILD. On a girl it sounds ridiculous. Stop trying to turn male names into unisex names. That stopped being original 50 years ago.
KenniWinchester  10/14/2014
The name Chase is a fantastic, strong, cute, amazing masculine name! I love this name! It's one of my FAVE boy names beginning with 'c'! It sounds very handsome and dignified. ^_^
― Anonymous User  11/19/2014
I think Chase is a nice strong name for both girls and boys even though I don't like the word itself very much. Chase makes me think of a cool, relaxed person, but also a dog chasing his tail.
Alexanna  3/9/2015
I love this name, but of course I would, considering it's my last name. Did you know "Chase" means "hunt"? Of course, if you're hunting something you ARE chasing it... I still think this is a sweet last name OR first name. It doesn't seem hard to spell, but I guess my school spelled it as "Chace" on a form I had. My brother got HIS name spelled right, though... anyway, I can't name my kid this when I grow up, or he'd be Chase Chase.
LivLaughLove  3/17/2015
I know a girl named Chase, and it really suits her. I do think it is a bit masculine (she's not masculine AT ALL) but I like it for a boy and a girl.

I am a girl and my name is Chase. All of my life I have had people comment on it. Personally I love my name. It is different but it is also powerful. I am in my twenties and I am a college student, and at work I have to wear a name tag. At least once every shift I get a compliment on my name. Yes, on paper I am often mistaken for male and when I have gone in for interviews I have had them say " I was expecting a man". I am proud to be named Chase and for all of the people above who think it is bad for a woman's name than you clearly haven't been around many girls with male names. We make them work. It is far better than to have a name no one can pronounce and it's way better than having a common name. My mother gave me a girly middle name just in case I hated my first name. But I love my name. No, I am not manly I am the text book definition of girly but I would never dream of being called anything else. If you are thinking about naming your daughter Chase, go for it.

My name is Chase. I was born in the 80's and growing up I would always get made fun of for my name because of how unusual it was, but now it's seems to be rising in popularity, which I kind of like.

I think Chase is cutest on a girl. I often use this in stories, on a girl age 3-7. However, it can be great for boys too. Chase Headley, Yankees third baseman, is a male Chase I like. The surname Chase is good too... *wink, wink*
― Anonymous User  3/15/2016
My daughter is named Chase and it fits her perfectly. She is smart, strong, beautiful and well-liked. I think it is a name that commands in a positive way for a girl. I also really like it for a boy too. It is also a girl name, I've met a couple females named Chase over the years, so I definitely wouldn't limit it to just males.

HerculePoirot  6/16/2016
It's a verb, not a name for crying out loud! If you give a kid this then he'll probably get teased for the rest of his life. Plus, if you pair it with a middle name or last name it sounds like a command, so because of that I strongly dislike it.
― Anonymous User  6/29/2016
My name happens to be a "feminine" version of the name. Chasey pronounced Chase-ee.
― Anonymous User  9/29/2016
To me, the name is smooth, simple, and easygoing. It also sounds a bit a competitive. And those of you who don't like it because it's a word as well, that's the worst reason to dislike it. Plus, those of you who are saying it's a verb, it's also a noun.
― Anonymous User  6/15/2017
So my name's Chance, but I'd say that 1 out of every 2 people always thinks I'm saying "Chase" when I introduce myself. I should seriously consider re-naming myself at this point, LOL.
― Anonymous User  8/22/2017
I say this name sounds a lot better on girls. I don't see the masculinity of this name to me it's like Hunter and Jordan spelled Jordan. I really don't like it on boys but I love it on girls.
