Meaning:Who is like God?
Chell is a girl’s name of Hebrew and French origin. It’s a shortened form of Michelle, the feminine version of Michel, which ultimately derives from the Hebrew name Michael, meaning “who is like God?” Michel is the French translation of this classic name. Michelle is a popular name in both French and English-speaking countries, thanks in part to the song by The Beatles of the same name. It’s often shortened to Shelley or Shel, but Chell is a less common spelling that will help baby stand out from the crowd. You may opt to use it as a nickname for Michelle, or as a name on its own.
