  • The origin of Chicot is more likely French. The French called sawyers, snags, and stumps "chicots." The Island aux Chicots (later Point Chicot) was called such by the French in the late 1700s. Island of aux Chicots was "encumbered with drift-wood...and narrowing the channel" making navigation difficult.
