This name is appropriate to name a turtle. It is an okay girl's name but I would certainly not use it for my daughter.

Also a nickname for Sheldon.

I wouldn't name my daughter this just for the fact that a lot of kids name pet turtles or hermit crabs this. In fact this is my youngest daughter's new turtle's name. Shelly Belly is the turtles name, and for soem reason I can't associate the name with anything other than an amphibian or reptile. Although I have met one girl named Shelly.

This name looks a bit more mature with the spelling Shelley. It's a pretty name, but the ending makes it somewhat cutesy and youthful. It sounds nicer than Kelly, however, and Kelly has the same ending. It's just that it's such a common name that few pwople would say ''what a little girl name!''. So I don't see why the name should get a very negative reaction. It doesn't sound very much like the name of a professor, scientist, or president, I'll give you that, but maybe that's because of sexism.

I'm writing another comment. I think this name is better as a shortened form of Michelle. That's just my opinion. I think that you should actually name her Michelle and shorten it to Shelly or Shelley or anyway you want to spell it. That way your daughter has a choice on what she'll go by. Besides, I think Michelle is more mature anyway. Shelly is cute though.

Hebrew for mine.

I think Shelly and Coral would be good names for mermaids. People say that I look like a mermaid sort of person, so I would probably have one of those names as a fantasy character.

Shelly Kagan is a modern American philosopher and professor at Yale University. He is an eccentric and hilarious act, the name suits him.

I have always loved this name. I love the fun and relaxed vibe it has, and I think it can definitely stand on its own!
-- lilpimpteller  8/1/2015
Also a nickname for "Sheldon" or "Rochelle."
-- Susyhome  8/4/2015
Unless you're using it as a nickname for a name like Sheldon. This is not a name for boys.
