What do you think?

Really don't like it sorry, but I have friends from Chester to just associate too much with the place and not a name.

nope... not for me.. but it was the name of a former president of the USA so he would be in exulted company.....

Absolutely awful. And then some. Lovely town, though.

Oh, ok grin

bebopanddoowop Fri 21-Mar-14 08:57:02

I quite like it!

I knew a lovely labrador called Chester grin

I think if you like surname-type names such as Hunter, Harper, Archer, then Chester is as good, if not better, than most.

I like Chester and dont really classify it as a last name per se. It is a lot like how William (s) is a last name but more of a first name. I find it a classic name that is not overused.

Perhaps this does not matter, but just in case, in France, Chester is the name of a cheese - google 'fromage Chester' to see.

I thought of Chester Cheetah, the cartoon mascot of Cheetos crisps. Not a good baby name!

I usually come on these threads to be positive about a name but just can't find anything I like about this one.
That said, your baby (who will be lovely whatever their name), your choice.

I like it, but wouldn't use it. The fact that it is a common part of town/city names puts me off of it as a given name.

MammaGnomes Fri 21-Mar-14 12:01:44

love it. dp hated it. luckily we had a girl.

beela Fri 21-Mar-14 12:18:27

A mixed bag then grin

I still can't decide whether I like it or not, but the surnamey-ness puts me off a little bit, as does the fact it is a place (don't really want any 'Brooklyn Beckham' comments, esp as we have never actually been to Chester!).

Thanks for the opinions smile

Davina has a son called Chester.

Mottled cheeked, tweed wearing, elderly aristo who tries to rub his aged member against your arse as you squeeze past.

Northumberlandlass Fri 21-Mar-14 12:21:18

I think it sounds like his surname should be Finklestamp III - it sounds Amercian to me.

Honestly doesn't matter what I think!

beela Fri 21-Mar-14 12:26:08

Hahaha squoosh, that's definitely not the image I was going for!

A work colleague's dd recently named her newborn ds Chester, unfortunately colleague's dh thought this was hilarious and told anyone who would listen their new dgs was called Chester Drawers !! hmm

ToffeeJungle Fri 21-Mar-14 12:40:39

I think I might like it, can't decide?!!!?!

I do love the place though, and the zoo!!

PunkAssMoFo Fri 21-Mar-14 14:17:21

Love it. Was on my list, but we live in Cheshire so was unsure. Had dd, but not excluded it for next time.
