Meaning:Camp of soldiers
Chess is a boy’s name of Latin origin. Though it may make you think of the game, Chess is a shortened form of Chester, a place name in England. Chester derives from the Latin word castrum, meaning “camp of soldiers,” and is today one of England’s prettiest and most historic towns. A worthy namesake for baby! This name is also a great choice if you’re hoping to raise a future chess grandmaster.
