Chad's last name is Applewhite, due to the fact because while Lincoln Peirce was doing information on Nate's baseball team (and Chad is on it), his last name was put on the back of his uniform, so Lincoln Peirce chose Appplewhite because it was old-fashioned like, and innocent, like Chad. This was taken from the Big Nate website.
