Hello i'm french, don't call your baby "Chaise" it means "chair" in english, anybody in France is named like that

I have honestly never heard of anyone called Chaise, is it a girl or a boy's name?

forgetmenots Sat 23-Mar-13 19:16:40

Longue. That's what I think!

Chaise isn't a name. It means chair.
Are you confusing it with something else?

Chase is a name in America, for boys. Do you mean that?

Chaise is definitely a chair. You don't have to be French to know that, they'll learn it in yr 7 at the latest.

I thought of longue

My second thought was of the late Dame Barbara Cartland reclining with a pekingese blush

It's ok. I prefer sofa though.

Has anyone ever called their child Chaise?

I rather like Chicane though.
(although neither child is actual named after furniture or traffic calming measures).

Eh?
are you asking,or telling? confused

I used to teach a Chaise (this spelling)- she was a spoilt brat.

I think it sounds silly. Was there a character on Gossip Girl called Chase? there should have been. It has that vibe.

ElegantSufficiency Sun 24-Mar-13 12:31:09

Stool, that's hilarious! grin

ElegantSufficiency Sun 24-Mar-13 12:33:07

I think names like Blake, Blaise, Blaire, Chase, they sound NORMAL in America so I wouldn't worry too much if somebody has the name Chase. They'll survive. There are in all truth much, much worse names out there.

Am I allowed to use Chaise as a middle name if DC's first name is Arm?

ElegantSufficiency Sun 24-Mar-13 12:34:55

or if your sur name is long! (ue)

Chase Long

I'm going to have to google that. Somewherein the World there is a Chase Long

ElegantSufficiency Sun 24-Mar-13 12:35:51

and, yes, there is a Chase Long on twitter and on myspace!

mrsbungle Sun 24-Mar-13 12:39:45

grin I think of happy that's what I also think when I think of a chaise longue! I also think of Victorian women 'swooning' for some reason.

I think people are getting mixed up with Chace - there is an American actor called Chace Crawford - something to do with Gossip Girl I think.
