That makes sense.
"Shellwyn" used as a variation of "Selwyn."

Your mom like the 'shell' sound (as in "Shelley") and used it to morph your uncle's name into a feminine form.

So no, there's no Welsh connection at all.
And yes, the name is still a home-brew.
But at least you have all the roots of your name in one basket.

"Selwyn" is apparently from the Anglo-Saxon roots 'sel' meaning 'house' or 'manor' and 'wyn' meaning 'friend.'
