"I like the way Chad sounds. It's kind of like the trendy names that come out now, but it has been around for awhile. It's not too common and it is masculine and sexy but a little understated." Aug. 3, 2008:

"My son Chad Allen was born in 1985. I heard the name on a TV show but I don't remember which one. It made me think of a preppy, Ivy league school kind of guy that's why I chose it. Reality is far different. My son was a social outcast all through school. He spent his teenage years in his room alone. He never did drugs or anything like that, he was just socially awkward. Now, 23 years later, I realize my son had Aspberger Syndrome, part of the autism spectrum that no one was even aware of when he was younger. Despite it all Chad is a kind hearted young man who gives of himself to everyone. He's currently in college studying behavioral sciences because he wants to help kids who feel out of place like he did." Aug. 2, 2008:
