Pronounced "Shan-dell" (Like sh-ann-dell), this name sounds similar to the french word for "Candlestick". It is also the name of a WorldWar II aerial maneuver that resembles the symbol for infinity. (So I am told by every WWII veteran I meet.)
- Personal experiences with the name Chandell: | Edit
I have only met one other person with a name that sounds like "Chandell" and she spells it differently. I suspect that less than twenty women in the USA have a name that is phonetically identical to this name. I love it. Everyone who hears my name usually comments immediately that it is new to them and beautiful.
- Nicknames for Chandell: | Edit
I've been called Shawn, Dell, Shawnny, Channy, Chan-dig, Chandellio, Chandelier, etc. But hardly more than once, on any of these. This name does not seem to lend itself to nicknaming.
I (being a different person than above) have been called; Candle, Chandelli, Chandelier, Delli, Chandi, and Jennifer which doesn't relate to my name at all, but that's what I've been called.

Chandell is like the french word chandelle which means candle. So Chandell is like saying light or candle.
I have to say the the name chandell could be for either a male or female. In irish it is a Males name not a female. In irish it means light of life.

Rick Warren's Sister is named "Shondel" (this is my understanding) and after her I was named. My parents knew her in High School, and they thought she had a groovy name. (They failed to remember how she spelled it, however.)
