"I used Chandler for a middle name in 1990 when I named my son Brent Chandler, it was my mother-in-laws grandfathers last name. He likes Brent, but he went through a stage where he wanted everybody to call him Chandler, so I think he likes it too!" Jan. 26, 2010:
"We named our son Chandler 1 year before "friends" came out - Although we were concerned about him being teased as the character "Chandler Bing" from Friends, much to our surprise not too many made any reference to Chandler Bing especially his peers. He is now almost 17 years old and we couldn't have been more pleased with his name being Chandler :)" Jun. 25, 2009:
