All Chads are absolute units. Alpha males in their truest form are always named Chad.

The name Chad is derived from the Kanuri word “Sádǝ” meaning "large expanse of water", in other words, a "lake."

A Chad, in derogatory slang, is a young urban American man, typically single and in his 20s or early 30s. The term originated in Chicago, Illinois. It was further covered by a satirical website dedicated to the Lincoln Park Chad Society, a fictional social club based in Chicago's upscale Lincoln Park neighborhood. The female counterpart to the Chad, in slang, is the "Trixie" or "Stacy". A Chad was originally depicted as originating in Chicago's affluent North Shore suburbs, receiving a BMW for his 16th birthday, obtaining a law or business degree from a Big Ten University, belonging to a fraternity, moving to Lincoln Park, marrying a Trixie, and then moving back to the North Suburbs.

Chad was later appropriated in incel forums to refer to sexually active alpha males.

Not very attractive, but sounds decent. I wouldn’t mind saying this is a fine name.

Anyone named Chad is literally a god. Every Chad is above 6'5, has a 24 pack, and has biceps larger than your average beach ball. They generally can fly and shoot lasers from their ears. If you ever meet someone named Chad that doesn't meet these standards, they aren't a real Chad.

If I were to be honest. I don't think Chad is a very bad name but I don't think it's good either. It's kind of bland, short, and everyone sees it as the stereotypical jock. Some people see it as a variant or diminutive of Charles or Chase. At my school there is a Chase who we call Chaz but I personally call him Chad. My name is Charles and some people jokingly call me Chad. I even know a Chad. So this name isn't bad but isn't good either. But at least it's not as bland as Lee.

The name Chad is of European origin whereas the name of the country Chad is of African origin and they have nothing in common, so I don't think the country should stop someone from using this... naming your son Chad is a lot different than naming him Bangladesh or Mongolia, where they have no usage outside of being the names of those countries.

My brother in law is named Chad and it is okay. Not the most unique name but it suits him.

Chad is the class clown. Friendly, outgoing, smart, funny, hard working, honest, well mannered, and loyal to a fault. Hates controversial or depressing topics. Likes to keep things light-hearted but will expect you to be as hard working and driven as he is to get the job done. Can be a bit critical without meaning to. Has a heart of gold, is dependable and would go out of his way to help you out. He is a great friend to have. Every Chad I have known has proven this to be true. Including my brother in law and my son.

Given that Chad is a country in Africa, it’s somewhat ironic that a lot of Chads are racist white frat boys.

To be fair, the US demographic that likes to name their kids 'Chad' and 'Jordan' probably doesn't even know those countries exist.

This is such an average Joe name. Chad. Boring. And by the way, it has nothing to do with the country in Africa.

This name reminds me too much of the English slang word "Chav" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav ), so I just find it unbearable.

Can't stand this name! It is rarely used in England or Australia, Americans have made this one their own. Along with Brad, Chet, Chip & Randy, the name Chad conjures up images of egotistical, ignorant, offensive, but reasonably physically attractive college students or jocks.

I always think of Chad as a big country in Africa. But I also like it as a name for a boy.

For some reason, this name always makes me think of young guys who aren't very smart, or pleasant, for that matter. The name sounds somewhat too youthful for a grown-up.

I heard somewhere that Chady (Chay-dee) is a variant of Chad/Chadwick, but it isn't on the website. I first heard the name as a song by Kay Hanley (Chady Saves The Day), and I think I prefer it to Chad. Some other site says it's meaning is "From the warrior's estate. The short form of Chadwick."

Hmm. I used to think this was a nickname for Charles. Might've been Chazz. Oh well.

Anyhoo, Chad is a cool name! It has a nice ring to it, and although it's good for a boy, it's even better for a man! :D
