I read anal instead of chantal. That must be because I just woke up? Actually no.

Both are hideous names in my opinion.

Chnatal? You mean Chantelle?

Chantelle, by far. Anyone who names their kid Antoinette should be shot.

I know someone named Chantal, so she might mean Chantal.

Fair enough, "Chantal"'s better than "chnatal".

EDIT: Wait, no. I still don't like that spelling. Spelt "Chantal" you'd put the accent on the first "a", whereas in "Chantelle" you put the accent on the first "e" (being the sound of the second "a" in "Chantal"). "Chantal" also doesn't look very French, so I'd pronounce it "ch" for "cheese". When I saw this thread it took me a while to figure out what this word was.

I thought Chantal was a French name. Anyway, I hate both names. They are old and sound... old. Antoinette could be the name of my great great great grand-mother.

Really? My hunch is that some semi-illiterate American has bastardised the name from the original spelling. It's obvious how you'd pronounce "Chantelle", but writen as "Chantal" I wouldn't presume the "Ch" was supposed to be pronounced as a "Sh".

I'm pretty sure it is.

I don't like either of the names, Chantal reminds me of a bitch in my class in elementary school, and Antoinette of my teacher in kindergarten...she was nice, but it still reminds me of a name for old people.
