  • "My name's Chelsea... I knew at least one other my age when I lived in NZ but I haven't known many since I came to Aus; I'm pretty sure I'm the only one in my school. Most people manage to spell it right, although I have had 'Chelsie' and so on or even 'Chealsea' o.O The only person who ever called me Chelse-ah was my French teacher, so she's excused. I think most people probably associate this name with the football club more than anything else! I don't think this is such a bad name... it's not too common (like, for example, Jessica) but not really strange. It's not that similar to many other names, so people never confuse it with anything except maybe Kelsey. I've had a few people tell me that they love my name, which is nice :)" May. 27, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Chelsea and she is 2 and i wouldn't change it because it isnt as common as Hannah like we were going to use." Oct. 1, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like my name okay, but I hate how people pronounce it wrong all the time. I get Chels-ia most often - is it difficult to know that "ea" sounds like "ee" in the English language the majority of the time? - and sometimes it's spelled wrong like Chelsey, Chealsea, Chelsie, all of which are wrong. I believe the original form was Chelsea but of course they have to celebritize it and make it more popular sounding. Sure. A bit of advice: if you're going to name your child Chelsea, stick with the old, correct form." Jul. 11, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "i love my name, but some people cannot spell it, they always spell it: Chealsey...haha it bugs me" Mar. 7, 2006: Report as inappropriate
