Shelby

Shelby comes from an English surname, of uncertain origin though possible a variant of Selby, made up from Old Norse selja (willow) and býr (settlement, farm), essentially meaning “settlement by the willow”. It’s also possible that Shelby is made up from Middle English schele “hut” combined with býr (farm, settlement).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
