A most excellent name for a pet rabbit. Or, at least my rabbit's named Chauncey. I can't imagine it on a person, though.

Wow, what a pretentios, elitist, snobby name. If parents name their son Chauncey, it's a pretty good sign they don't love him, but that he's just an extension of their ego and a tool for achievements that they can brag about to relatives and ''friends''.

Makes me think of a fat snob with a handle-bar mustache.

My 18 year old grey cat is named Chauncey. My dad named him Chauncey because apparently his roommate in college called things a "Chauncey" if he didn't know what the object was really called. I think it's a good name for a pet, but I can't imagine it on a person.

I think Chauncey is a good name for a dog.

Chauncey always reminds me of the Pokémon known as Chansey. On a person, it sounds like the name of an effeminate gay man. It's kind of pretentious anyway.

Chauncey Gardiner was a name given to Chance the Gardener in the novel Being There by Jerzy Kosinski.

Hahaha, I love looking up the most ridiculous names and seeing all the negative comments. Chauncey does have an incredibly pompous sound to it, doesn't it?

I know someone named Chauncey and yes, it's a little odd at first, but you get used to it and it just kind of "becomes" that person.

Dad was named Chauncey and went by Chaunce. It was a family name. No pretentious people in my family. Dad was a baker born in 1911 just after the popularity spiked for the last time in the 20th century. I think it's a good name, although I might give the kid a serviceable middle name he could choose to use or not.

The name Chauncey was given to 55 boys born in the US in 2015.

I've only ever known of black guys named Chauncey. Probably because they are the only guys who wouldn't automatically get their butt kicked for having such a prissy "beat up" name.

Had a class with a boy named Chauncey. I don't think too much of the name. But I agree it does sound feminine.

I love the name Chauncey! I'm surprised to see all the negativity. The nicknames Chaunce & Chance are great, too!
