Etymology & Historical Origin - Chandler
Chandler is the transferred use of an English surname originating from an occupation name. It comes from the Old French “chandele” meaning ‘candle’ and was the noun used to signify a maker and seller of candles. The word ultimately comes from the Latin “candere” meaning ‘to be bright’. The first recoded spelling of this surname was rendered “le Candeler” in the late 13th century. Chandler is widely considered a unisex name, but is more commonly used for boys.
Popularity of the Name Chandler
The name Chandler first appeared on the American male naming charts in 1969 but pretty abruptly fell off the charts, returning to obscurity for most of the 1970s. The name did not reemerge until 1982 and still only saw levels of low-moderate usage. What really catapulted Chandler’s popularity was the 1994 debut of a loveably funny, self-deprecating character named Chandler Bing on the ϋber-popular sitcom “Friends” (1994-2004). That following year (1995), the name Chandler jumped almost 200 positions on the chart to spot #171. The height of the name’s popularity came in 1999 at position #151. Interestingly, the name Chandler also appeared on the female naming charts between 1992 and 2002, but she has since fallen off. Since the name is almost exclusively used on baby boys today, we are calling this a masculine name. However, it has a history of being unisex and many parents like this name for their daughters. It works either way in our opinion. For boys, Chandler also has a dose of that haughty, wealthy boy resonance like Easton, Wesley, Sebastian and Brooks.
