Chevy Chase Glendale

My friend Bob lives just off Chevy Chase and I was curious if it was mamed after the actor, or the other way round, much like Segovia Spain, is named after the famous clasical guitarist, Mr Segovia.

They were both preceded by the town of Chevy Chase, Maryland, incorporated 1918, outside of Washington, D.C. The town was named for a colonial era landholding known as "Cheivy Chace", the origin of that term are in dispute, says the town's website.

thanks ...

So did Chevy the actor just pick that stage name because it sounded nice.

If I was an actor I'd call myself Bognor Regis. Apparently I was conceived there.
