I like the name, however Chelsea Davy is a high profile on-again / off again girlfriend of Prince Harry.

Love Chelsea!

I really like the name Chelsea - however PP does have a good point about Chelsea Davey - especially if she does end up with Prince Harry permanantly.


Re middle names,  I would avoid any ending in ee sound as Chelsea Davey both end in ee already - so something like Chelsea Marie, although quite nice with a different surname, gets a bit ee over load to me.

It was our number two name, but we were taken with Chelsey (I think that might be the way Harrys gfs name is spelt), can't tell you why we liked it only with a Y.

Said it before and I'll say it again - I obviously like it a lot as that's DD's name  original.gif

For the record I agree with the PP's about Prince Harry's Chelsea though.

I love Chelsea!  My dd was going to be one at one stage but she suited her name better on the day.

In the country I'm from it had a huge thing in the '80s and '90s and I named a doll Chelsea back in the day. I remember thinking it was the height of charm when I was 11.

I don't really care for it now, though. There are other names I associate with the '80s-'90s I'd prefer.

I think it never had that peak here though? So it doesn't date the same way?

yes  I remember quite an in depth analysis of that very question on a previous thread la di dah - consensus from that being that it didnt peak as early or as strongly here in Australia therefore is not as dated now.

Yeah so what I think may not matter.

Except my burning hatred of Prince Harry. That's important. He's brought to tears by the very thought.

Chelsea is in my top 2 girls names, but DP just shakes his head at the mere mention so I don't think I will ever get to use it.

Possible middle names:

Chelsea Grace
Chelsea Kate
Chelsea Paige
Chelsea Louise
Chelsea Rose
Chelsea Ava
Chelsea Jade
Chelsea Maya

I have never liked this name.

And FWIW, Prince Harry's girlfriend was Chelsy Davy, not Chelsea.

I think it's terrible.

Posted 06 February 2013 - 08:59 AM

I am personally not the biggest fan of middle names like rose, ann, lee as they are so commonly used but I think with the first and last name having 2 syllables the middle needs to either be 1 or 3 maybe even 4 syllables.  But I really like the name Chelsea.

Our 6 yo is called Chelsea Grace. I still love the name.

I think it's one of those names that have been around for years but never been popular or unpopular.

I also love Chelsea Jade.
