WARNING! THIS THREAD I AM POSTING CONTAINS SPOILERS!
I've read through all of Chobits, (about @#% time, too! T-T), and they didn't explain why "Chi" was her first word. She even occationally said it to the end of the series.
I have a therie;
The parents of Elda and Freya are Ichiro and Chitose, right?
Ichiro!
Chitose!
I think a little bit of memory stayed with her. Enough to almost remember those names, and said what is now her name because it was familiar, being part of both parents names.
Well? What do you think? Any ideas of your own?

Sweet Jesus! Either I just don't try thinking too deeply into anime at all, or I just didn't bother with Chobits. I honestly never once thought "now why was Chi her first word?" But your little theory could hold some water I would guess, but I actually have a more plausable theory now that I think about it. It's plain and simple... ready? It sounds cute. That's it, simple as that... it sounds cute. Nothing makes fanboys and fangirls alike laugh like elementary school kids more than cute words and sounds like the ever popular "nya". Get everybody all gooey eyed and sweet toothed and they will watch and buy anything you've got. If you at all said "kawaii" after she said Chi, then guess what, the ploy worked.

Nice thought though, and good to see another CLAMP fan out there.

Under construction. Who doesn't like plain text anyway?

I agree with clampfan101, Chi probably does refer to the names of Chii's parents.

If chi is japanese for blood, maybe it has something to do with her heart? Like you guys said, it may mean nothing more than "Nya_2.0" or whatever. This is just thinking it might have one. (Meaning or not, though: it IS cute!) ^_,^

I think it's somehow connected to "chobits", which means "little". and didn't Chitose say that they named Elda and Freya chobits because it's derived from her name or something? So I think it could be like you said, Chi being derived from Chitose and Ichigo, and for chi-bi.

I myself don't quite go with that theory. For me its closer Shoujoboy's version that its a cute non-sensical syllable uttered by someone that can't talk. Compare with Elfen Lied's "Nyu". I don't think its supposed to mean anything either. Or even Potato's (Air) "Piko" / "Pi" - and thats the sound a dog should make?

But if you wanna go with that theory be my guest.

Life is a game played by gods who are bored and who fight over the rules.

"Chi" also has a different translation: Intelligence, or wisdom... though, maybe this can't really be applied to Chi herself... ^_^' .

I think the original theory, that she's named after her parents, makes a lot of sense. Interesting topic, by the way!

I think the poster above is thinking about the word "Eh?", since that, in essence, is the Japanese word for "What?".

I always thought it was the mechanical sound of her trying to talk, but failing. It wouldn't have sounded as if a human were saying it, but more high pitched and computer-like

..I hope I made that clear enough.

Feh. This color is my personality. It makes me different from everyone else. Love and revel it.
