Zelie is a girl’s name of French origin. It stems from the floral name Azalea, referring to the hot pink flowering shrub from the Rhododendron family. Zelie also translates to “noble”, which can be cited as a reference to Saint Zélie, canonized in the Catholic Church. Saint Zélie was an expert lace maker and mother to five daughters, all of whom became nuns following her passing. Whether you hope to help baby honor your faith or simply prefer a modern spin on a floral classic, Zelie suggests a fresh and snappy alternative with a touch of French cool.
