I have a dream too!
I have always checked out what my first name meant over the years, because it doesn't always show up in the baby books, but here is what my nickname means.
Shelly: (although I dont spell it this way)
This girl's and boy's name is used in English. Its source is scylf leah, an Old English phrase meaning "Sloped meadow." (Huh?)

Shell Station - In reference to a gasoline fill-up station.
*Shelley's belly is full of jelly
Okay, Im putting the FORT on alert, If anyone calls me "Smelly Belly", Its ON!
Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God
My name has always been a burden to me. I've hated it all my life. There's nothing really wrong with it, I've just never been happy with it, mostly because I wanted it to be spelled differently. I guess as I get older, I'm getting happier with it.
Alternate spellings of the name Leslie include: Leslea, Leslee, Lesleigh, Lesley, Lesli, Lesly
Meaning: [according to the babynamer.com website) a Gaelic phrase meaning "Holly garden." I have seen the meaning as "Of the Gray Fortress." Whatever the heck that means!!

Another interesting tidbit. The 60's model Twiggy's real name was Leslie Hornby. My mom was called Twiggy in high school. I always thought that's where she got my name. But no, my father named me after an ex-girlfriend of his. Nice, huh?
Lezbo (the most popular choice of mindless boys in school)
Lez the Pez
Lesbian (see Lezbo)
Pesty old Leslie (my cousin Tyson's nickname for me)
"Are you from the island of Lesbos?"
Nestle (yep, heard it! Usually in the form of, "Do you work for Nestle?"
Less than a person
Lester the Molester (was called this one by a good family friend, mostly because I always dated guys younger than me. Stills calls me it to this day!)
Les Nessman (WKRP in Cinncinati, he-he)
More or less
Less is more

Actually though, It gets more amusing.
I have a twin sister you see, and my mom didn't know she was having twins. so she decided that the name would be either 'Erik' or 'Erika' depending on gender. When they had twins they were in a quandery. They figured if they used 'Erik' AND 'Erika' then they would have a problem when they wanted to call one of us: Either both would arrive, or neither of us. Answer: my mom was reading Robin Hood at the time. And thought the names were kewl. So she named my sister Robin Erika, and myself Erik Locksley (the thought is: if i became a doctor or a lawyer, I could call myself E. Locksley, or, (and for a while this was more likely) if i became a truck driver, I could call myself RIK).
