"Most people mispronounce the name "Chauncey," others misspell it. Some folks feel that the name sounds "dignified" or "classy," while others fail to remember the correct pronounciation and silently reject the name. Bearing this name is a lifetime burden, despite some renowned personalities with this name. Given the choice, I would have never chosen this name. But in respect to my mother's wishes I bear it with pride." Mar. 27, 2017:

"This is a rare name that was in my family somewhere quite awhile back. Often our family used the mother's maiden name as a first name for both boys and girls. (I think its a Puritan and Quaker custom). I've read recently that in the US this is an anglicized version of the name Shaunessy." Jul. 15, 2008:
