1. Initial reaction?
2. Would it be shortened? And to what?
3. Does it remind you of any other names?

1. A town.

And I think the name of a horse in a picture book I vaguely remember as a child.....

2. Chez

3. Not really, but it isn't my cup of tea.

Nice pet name.

Weird kid name.

Fester. Uncle Fester.

Is your surname "Draws"?

My Mum's cat is called Chester, so I can't see it as anything else!

He gets called Ches/Chez and Chessy/Chezzy, if that's any help...

it's funny, I had never thought of the town until I had pressed send on this thread.

Chez is my fear. I hear Fizz on Corrie shouting Chezzzzzzzzzzz! Chezzznay!!!!! shudders

haha at draws. definitely not.

I absolutely loved this name when I first heard it.. now, it's being completely struck off.. DH will be devastated!

In sure a celeb has used that name. Davina McCall maybe or holly off daytime TV maybe.
I'm not a fan but it could be worse.

Erimemushinteperem Mon 26-Oct-15 12:22:02

Just looked it up and yes they both did.
I've never heard it otherwise so for me it's a bit of a celeb name.

Holly was where I heard it. Damn the celebs.

1) A teddy bear or a dog - I know several canine Chesters. Then the town.
2) Probably Chez.
3) I'd put it the same category as eg Bertram, Ernest and Clarence - sort of 'clunky vintage.' It's cute in a pet, but I wouldn't use it for a child.

To me, it's a cat's name.

I know someone called Chester, although now I think about it I think it's his surname.

I do know a dog called Chester though
