I posted one thread about it. It disappeared.

No, it's still up there & I've just posted a link on it explaining why Chelly would be pronounced Shay.

And now another thread in case you've "lost" it..,

blueskyinmarch Thu 11-May-17 22:14:58

And another thread - this is getting boring now.

Chelly wouldn't be pronounced Shelley so if you want Shelley just spell it Shelley for goodness sake

Have you considered Shelley - pronounced Shay?

SherlockPotter Thu 11-May-17 22:20:45

The Ch and Sh sounds are different... so they won't be pronounced the same.

WowserBowser Thu 11-May-17 22:20:54

How about Shae pronounced Shelly?

heateallthebuns Thu 11-May-17 22:25:43

I don't think you're ready for this chelly

FrancisCrawford Thu 11-May-17 22:25:54

But Chelly would rhyme with Jelly, so quite different from The sound of Shelley. There's a second e in the latter for a reason.

elephantscansing Thu 11-May-17 22:27:16

Chelley is not a name.

Shelley is a name. So use it.

ProseccoBitch Thu 11-May-17 22:29:27

I think they're all awful grin

<not helpful at all>

FurryTrousers Thu 11-May-17 22:43:49

Or a bit of both - Chelay

SomeOtherFuckers Thu 11-May-17 23:18:20

Neither ew

8misskitty8 Thu 11-May-17 23:41:57

Sorry but neither.

Shelley was the name of a girl who lived near us who would take orders and shoplift the items. She was notorious for it and banned from most shops.
She was also the stereotypically benefits teen and then adult with multiple children and 'fathers'

Have never heard the name since until now.

Not helpful I know op.
