SHELLEY

This name means “from the meadow on the ledge, clearing on a bank”. Shelley is today a name given almost exclusively to girls after historically being male. Shelley and Shelly are also a transferred surname used by those in Essex, Suffolk and Yorkshire, particularly in settlements where a wood/clearing was beside a ledge or hillside. Percy Bysshe Shelley was one of the major English Romantic poets and is critically regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language.
