Gender: Male Origin of Chelsea: London and New York neighborhood name

The name Chelsea is a boy's name . Chelsea and discussed in our forums with posts like "This or That, Girls".

From the experts:

Chelsea for a boy? Yes--and we've got two maleberry Chelseas to prove it (one of whom even wrote a blog for us about his experience)! Boy Chelseas would more likely be named for the British football team than the old Joni Mitchell song sung by Judy Collins.

Shea is a boy name so your comparison is a bit off. Having said that, I personally think Chelsea would work fine for a boy.

I think Chelsea would work fine for a boy. I've never encountered it but if a boy can wear Shea, a boy can wear Chelsea.

I think this would be very difficult for a boy to carry. Although I only know one Chelsea, and it is not that popular anymore

I know a male Chelsea from childhood. Honestly, I'm more confused now as an adult with an understanding that it is more popular for females, than I was back then. As kids, you don't think about these things. Confusion only set in about the time I reached high school and realized he was about the only male I knew named Chelsea.
