I like Nathaniel, i don't know any. My sister has said she thinks it sounds chav tho?!
Thoughts / suggestions most welcome ! smile

No, this seems to be asked more and more and there always seems to be someone or other prepared to say any name is 'chav'.

Queenbean Sat 03-Sep-16 15:06:54

I love the name. Even better when shortened to Nate

To be fair, loads of names sound posh on posher people and then lower class on lower class people

Dontrocktheboat Sat 03-Sep-16 15:08:14

No it is a lovely name, not 'chavvy' at all.

mouldycheesefan Sat 03-Sep-16 15:11:41

No absolutely not.

hippydippybaloney Sat 03-Sep-16 15:12:23

Nope definitely not.

EmpressKnowsWhereHerTowelIs Sat 03-Sep-16 15:19:30

God no. My great-great-great-grandfather was called Nathaniel & is generally understood (in the family) to have been a fine bloke.

Mausageandsash Sat 03-Sep-16 15:24:34

No it's cute I like it

whensitmyturn Sat 03-Sep-16 15:25:29

Lovely name and really love Nate for short.

AnneGables Sat 03-Sep-16 15:28:42

No not chav at all and I also love Nate.

Blackberryandapplejam Sat 03-Sep-16 15:32:22

No. It's fine

NapQueen Sat 03-Sep-16 15:33:42

Love it and do think it's nicer than Nathan
Not chavvy at all imo. Nate is an excellent nn.

LowAMH Sat 03-Sep-16 15:33:42

No it's not. Love Nate.

ayeokthen Sat 03-Sep-16 15:34:07

I don't think so, and I love Nate for short. It just didn't work with the surname, so we chose something else.

It is a lovely classic name. I always associate with the georgous Phil Lynott (RIP), in War of the Worlds

<wanders off humming "no Nathanial, no.. there must be more to life ...>

There you go OP

Go whack your sister with this link. Figuratively.


Floggingmolly Sat 03-Sep-16 15:41:35

Of course it isn't, it's the exact opposite if anything. Lovely name.

WaitroseCoffeeCostaCup Sat 03-Sep-16 15:42:34

No! It's lovely!

SoftSheen Sat 03-Sep-16 15:42:49

Not in the least!

OliviaStabler Sat 03-Sep-16 15:43:33

Not chav at all

Bluesand1 Sat 03-Sep-16 20:25:10

I don't think so but have seen it described as chav on here once which is ridiculous

FlappyRose Sat 03-Sep-16 20:27:48

Not at all. It's a lovely, classic name.

nat73 Sat 03-Sep-16 20:33:47

Yes, chavy - I am with your sister ;-)

smarterthanhim Sat 03-Sep-16 20:35:26

No, and I'm a massive snob.

DramaAlpaca Sat 03-Sep-16 20:36:59

Gorgeous name.
