(SHON-tay) It's an unusual French word, meaning 'to sing' and it makes a really pretty girls name. To me it sounds sophisticated and exotic.

In French, chanter /shahn TAY/ is the verb "to sing." As a first name it has been used in many variant spellings: Chantae, Shantay, Shawntee etc. since the 20th century, most often by African Americans.
