What are everyone's thoughts on Chester

ErrolTheDragon Wed 12-Nov-14 16:38:40

It's a nice town.

Alisvolatpropiis Wed 12-Nov-14 18:18:45

It makes me think of a nasal American pre-teen.

I think Davina mccoll has a son called this, I actually quite like it smile

SauvignonBlanche Wed 12-Nov-14 18:22:31

It's a great place to live.

Davina and holly fri this morning both have baby's with this name I'm not keen but dp has decided he loves it

Sophronia Wed 12-Nov-14 23:22:41

I don't like that it has the word 'chest' in it. I prefer Kester.

ErrolTheDragon Wed 12-Nov-14 23:30:46

Mention to your DH that Chester means 'army camp' and then start talking about It Ain't Half Hot Mum....

Chester Copperpot... and look what happened to him!

BitterHoneyGreenNight Wed 12-Nov-14 23:36:03

As somewhere to visit? Nice.

As a name for your baby? Please don't.

A fine name for a Labrador.

Not if your surname is Drawers

Other than the town, it makes me think of a dog or a teddy bear. On a person, I'd imagine someone quite jolly, rotund and rosy-cheeked for some reason!

Not the worst name ever imo, but there are far better ones out there.

I like Chester. Makes me think of the front man in Linkin Park.

Kester? Definitely not!

DecaffTastesWeird Thu 13-Nov-14 20:18:30

Oh no, I do not like it at all. I do know someone who has a little boy named Chester but that person is a bit "oh no" too!

Leeds2 Thu 13-Nov-14 20:51:33

I think it is a dog's name.

saintsandpoets Thu 13-Nov-14 20:52:37

Great zoo.

Only1scoop Thu 13-Nov-14 20:53:49

Love it wanted it for ds....

Shorten to Chet for Nn

Great name

I used to live next door to a man called Chester. Which is strange as it was in London and I'm actually from the city of Chester.
Chester is a city, not a town. It has a cathedral (hoity sniff).

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Thu 13-Nov-14 20:58:12

Lovely for a dog.

SauvignonBlanche Thu 13-Nov-14 21:02:08

PIlL's dog is called Chester.

bouncingbelle Thu 13-Nov-14 21:41:34

Our school bus driver was called Chester, we called him Chester Chester child molester (the poor man wasn't one).

That's all I think about when I hear the name hmm
