What Kind Of A Name Is "Chandler" Anyway!?
For nearly two decades, us hardcore Friends fans have been plagued by a simple question…
No, not what happened to Ben.
We’re talking about the most important question in TV history:
What the hell kind of a name is “Chandler” anyway?
Phoebe? Bit fruity, but fine.
Ross? Only on TV, but not out of the realm of possibility.
Rachel? Drinks pumpkin spiced lattes and thinks Michael McIntyre is *edgy*.
Who the fuck would call their kid Chandler anyway?
Well, the answer may actually surprise you…
In the ten years before Friends was unleashed on an unsuspecting Earth, only 478,983 American kids were given Monica’s-future-husband’s moniker.
That number shot up to over 2.6 MILLION babies over the show’s ten-year duration… That’s around 5.2 Million Friends-loving parents, hoping-upon-hope that their kid doesn’t develop some sort of shark porn fetish…
But what does it mean?
Well, Chandler is actually a French name that means “candle maker” – think Chandalier…
So, there you go, THAT'S exactly what kind of a name Chandler is!
