    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?)

    Nicknames of the name Shelley include: Shell. Alternate spellings of the name Shelley include: Sheli, Shelli, Shellie, Shelly. There are two other forms of Shelley. There are also teasing nicknames:

    Shell Station - In reference to a gasoline fill-up station.


    *Seashell


    *Smelly


    *Belly


    *Shelley's belly is full of jelly


    *Jelly


    *Shelley Belly


    *Jelly Belly


    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.

    Name: Leslie

    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!!

    Leslie was ranked 143rd of popular names for girls on the 1990 census.

    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?

    Teasing Nicknames:
    Lez-be-friends
    Lezbo (the most popular choice of mindless boys in school)
    Lez the Pez
    Lesbian (see Lezbo)
    Lesbi-ann
    Creslie
    Pesty old Leslie (my cousin Tyson's nickname for me)
    "Are you from the island of Lesbos?"
    Lesotho
    Leso
    Lettuce Leaves
    Nestle (yep, heard it! Usually in the form of, "Do you work for Nestle?"
    Lestoil
    Lezzy
    Less than a person
    Lester
    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-lie
    More or less
    Less is more
    Lezby

    Oh you'll love this:

    Erik add this name to a list



    This boy's name is used in German, Dutch, English, Czech, Norwegian, Swedish and Danish. Its source is ei rikr, an Old Norse phrase meaning "Complete ruler." Learn more about the heritage of this name.

    Nicknames of the name Erik include: Ricky. Alternate spellings of the name Erik include: Eric, Erich. There are two other forms of Erik. There are also teasing nicknames (see Drawbacks).

    Edit
    Erik the Derek
    Earache
    America
    Erik the Red
    Err
    Earwig
    Air-ick
    Air dick

    The name Erik ranked 231st in popularity for males of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.


    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).

    Rachel:

    This girl's name is used in Hebrew, German, English, Italian, French and Polish. Its source is a Hebrew expression meaning "Ewe." Learn more about the heritage of this name.

    Commentary:

    In Jewish scripture, the patriarch Jacob was so taken by Rachel's beauty that he agreed to work seven years for the privilege of marrying her. Her father craftily substituted Rachel's older sister, Leah, at the wedding ceremony, but such was Jacob's love that he worked yet another seven years to add Rachel to his household.
    Rachel has always been a favored name among Jews. Starting with the 17th-century Puritans, it has been consistently popular among Christians as well. It has even spawned a French-sounding variation -- Rachelle -- that is unknown in France.
    (My mom called me Rachelle (hard french R, like Hrah, she was french)
