In many baby name books, Shelley is listed as meaning "From the meadow on the ledge" or "clearing on a bank" sometimes truthful and pretty. It is Old English in origin. As with many other names (Ashley, Courtney, etc.), Shelley is today a name given almost exclusively to girls after historically being male. Shelley is 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.

Famous quotes containing the word shelley:

    Commerce has set the mark of selfishness,
    The signet of its all-enslaving power,
    Upon a shining ore, and called it gold:
    Before whose image bow the vulgar great,
    The vainly rich, the miserable proud,
    The mob of peasants, nobles, priests, and kings,
    And with blind feelings reverence the power
    That grinds them to the dust of misery.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Men of England, wherefore plough
    For the lords who lay ye low?
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Ah, woe is me! Winter is come and gone,
    But grief returns with the revolving year.
    —Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
