Leslie Davies-Hilliard submitted the winning names, Chandler and Hope. Leslie proposed the names Chandler and Hope after the well-known estate in Port Tobacco, Chandler’s Hope. This estate was owned by the Chandler family, a distinguished first family in the Port Tobacco area. In the late 1600s, the area was then known as Chandler’s Town.
