Take a chance on giving your son a name that means “good fortune.” Chance has been a favorite name in the US since the late 1960s, hitting its peak in 1996. The name, a short form of Chauncey, is derived from the Latin “cadens” and was introduced by France to England through a nickname, “cheance.” The name has brought lots of good luck to musician Chance the Rapper (full name: Chancelor Johnathan Bennett).
