Shelli is a feminine name with Old English roots, coming from the classic moniker Shelley. Coming from the Old English words scelf and lēah, it translates to “sloped meadow” or “clearing on a bank.” This can make for a perfect fit if baby’s first home is going to be near peaceful meadows and rolling hills. Shelli may also come from the Irish last name Ó Sealbhaigh, which could translate to “possessor’s descendant” or “wealthy descendant.” Your family can have so many treasures—from heirlooms to knowledge—that can be passed down to baby. For a name that encourages baby to appreciate their elder, Shelli can do the job.
