Meaning & Origins

Transferred use of the surname, the most famous bearer of which was the English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822). The surname is in origin a local name from one of the various places (in Essex, Suffolk, and Yorkshire) named in Old English as the ‘wood (or clearing) on (or near) a slope (or ledge)’. The name is now used almost exclusively for girls, in part perhaps as a result of association with Shirley (the actress Shelley Winters, 1922–2005, was born Shirley Schrift), and in part due to the characteristically feminine ending -(e)y.

German: 1. from Middle High German zinke ‘peak’, acquired either as a topographic name by someone who lived on or near a crag or on a pointed piece of land or as a nickname for a man with a singularly pointed nose. Compare modern German slang Zinken ‘hooter’. The same word was used to denote the cornet, although the semantic development is not clear, and the surname may sometimes have been metonymic for a player of this instrument. It was not until the 16th century that the metal zinc was discovered and named (apparently from its jagged appearance in the furnace), so this is unlikely to be the origin of the surname. 2. from Jacinctus, which derives from Hyacinthus, a saint's name. Compare Spanish Jacinto, Italian Giacinto.
