    I have a son who was born in 1996. I searched long and hard for the perfect name for my last child..already raising 4. I researched a long time and for my love of unique names came across Chancelor and instantly thought… Nickname be Chance… I was hooked! I chose to use the English spelling of Chancellor but I feel it means the same…so I guess I would name a child after a disaster… My son is a strong person and I feel it was the proper name for him
