Comments and insights on the name Chantal:

I named my daughter CHANTAL because I am a French teacher and always thought it was the most beautiful name to say, hear and see. Most Americans do not know how to properly pronounce it, but she has accepted it. Her/our biggest problem is that people want to 'Americanize" its spelling and make it -el or -elle at the end. We are working on accepting that, but it's going to be harder!!!

My name is Chantal. I get a lot of comments on my name, some surprise me and some dont. I get a lot of people that are confused by the sound, origin, and spelling of my name. I've had people come right up to me and tell me that it's a black name, a latino name, and of course a French name. I'm Caucasian and from New England, so I think it's interesting the mispronunciations and spellings of Chantal. I've been called everything from Chaniqua, Chantine, Chanel, Michelle, and even Show-and-tell. It used to frustrate me but now I just think it's funny. I think that because people have been so careless with what they call me I try hard to make sure I call people by their names and not "what I think I heard".

A survey in 2012 in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland reported that Chantal is seen there as a name given by people of low socio-economic background to their children, causing teachers to stereotype them as troublemakers. Other names on this list are Kevin, Mandy, Justin, Marvin, and Celina.

Personal experiences with the name Chantal:

My name is spelt Shantal. My mom loved the name, but seeing as we are not french, my dad changed the spelling. I haven't found anyone else with it spelt this way. I hate when its misprounounced Shawn-tell is not my name.
