An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England produced the name of Chave. It was given to a bald headed man. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the French expression le chauve, which means "the bald one."

Chave Early Origins



The surname Chave was first found in Dorset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
