Chelsea

chalk landing place
ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 699
This baby name comes from a fashionable, artistic area of London called Chelsea; the name is derived from Old English and means “chalk landing place” (ships would pull up to the Chelsea wharf and unload their cargoes of chalk there). It came to prominence in the swinging 1970s, peaking in popularity in the early 1990s, but it's still a stylish, pretty name. A daughter named Chelsea would be in good company with strong, smart women, like Chelsea Handler and Chelsea Clinton.
