Morning all, I heard of the name Chez for the first name yesterday, I had never heard of it before. Is it a real name or is it a shorting of a name?
Please advise 😊

Can be short for Cheryl.

TheWayTheLightFalls · 21/11/2023 06:45

Pronounced as spelt, or “Shay”? I would guess it’s short for something, may even be for Francesca or similar.

I knew a Chez, it was short for Francesca.

Nope. That’s avec.

Chez is ‚at the home/place of‘ like chez Marie.

Chez is imagine is short for something else. In Point of fact though no names are ‚real‘ until people use it and in doing so it becomes real.

It really isn’t!

FloofCloud · 21/11/2023 07:57

Do you mean Shay?

‘Che’ as in Che Guevara

Chez was a nickname for Cheryl when I was at school. Like Shaz for Sharon.

Yes, our Chez at work, pronounced how it's written, is a Cheryl.

TheLovleyChebbyMcGee · 21/11/2023 08:11

Or short for Chesney? Or is that maybe the one and only going around?

CeciledeVolangesdeNouveau · 21/11/2023 08:19

We had a Chez at school, pronounced like that not the French way and short for Francesca. I personally don’t find it the prettiest name about or the nicest shortening of Francesca or any other name, but that’s personal taste. It doesn’t help that the person in question wasn’t super nice to me!

Depends how it’s pronounced really. I know a ‘Chez’ but that’s short for Chesney because he used to look like someone out of emmerdale or coronation street apparently and it’s just stuck 🤣

TheresaCrowd · 21/11/2023 09:09

I know a Chez which is short for Cherokee.

ErrolTheDragon · 21/11/2023 09:30

I knew a Chez. She was a border collie. Apparently it was short for 'bitchez'. (The owner was a retired Rev Dr medical missionary not a rapper)

ghostestwiththemostest · 21/11/2023 09:44

I know a Chez. It's short for Chaise-Lounge.

WellThisIsFun1 · 21/11/2023 09:45

I knew a Chez. It was short for Chezalina, she was Maltese

Anything seems to go now

I'm not sure her Mexican family would agree.

What has their being Mexican got to do with it? ‘Cherokee’ is not a Mexican name.
