Old fashioned gypsies were called romany gypsies who were well known for fortune telling etc... the term romany actually came from romanian gypsies (even though most werent romanian. They used to travel to romania to sell their wares from surrounding countries, at some point romanias rich powerful people started enslaving the gypsies and forcing them to do work).
Dont be offended, nobody ever said that everybody in romania is a gypsie, but then being a gypsie is a way of life and many of them are proud to be gypsies.

Chives does have a butleresque ring to it
