  • "My name's Chance. I hated my name growing up, it was different and rhymed so it got me made me fun of alot, but it made me stronger, quicker witted and more resilient. I really like my name now and have ever since I got to about 16 or so, girls usually like it, people always remember me and now I'd hate it so much to be a boring Brian, John, Michael, or whatever other name that millions of other people have. Plus I always have great luck, may be the name, but I don't know." Oct. 23, 2020: Report as inappropriate

My son is only 3 but even now I see he is a very indepent and strong minded person. He's also a quick learner and seems wiser then his age at times. I think this name promotes Strength, Intellect, Wisdom, Power and Fortune." Oct. 22, 2012: Report as inappropriate

It's a memorable and cool name which will elicit some uncouth folks to ask if you named your child such since you took a "chance" during intimacy. Oh well. Folks either seem to love it or make a stupid remark about it." Aug. 21, 2008: Report as inappropriate
