What do you think of the name Chandler? My cousin named his son Chandler and I always thought I would think of "Friends" but 5 years later I think it's adorable and suits him so well! I've never met another Chandler, which I also like. Here's what behindthename says...

CHANDLER
Gender: Masculine
Usage: English
Pronounced: CHAND-lər
From an occupational surname which meant "candle seller" in Middle English, ultimately from Old French.

While Friends is my favorite show and I don't mind the name on the character... I much prefer Chandler to only be a surname.

But I don't hate it.

its practically only from Friends, since it really wasn't anywhere else before that, so the association is rather strong... and still will be years from now, due to the popularity of the show.

Since I never watched an entire episode of 'Friends' in my life, I don't see it from that perspective.

I knew a little girl named Chandler and the name fit her very well. I think it would be nice on a guy too.

I thought of 'Friends' right away, but I can see how it might grow on me.

I think of Friends, too, but that is not a bad association for me. I love it.

Honestly, I will forever think of the show "Friends" when I hear this name.
