We're not sure exactly who did it, but it was not a name for a person atfirst. Chelsea was first used as a district name for a part of London inEngland. In the Old English dictionary, Chelsea means "landing-placefor chalk or limestone", that is to say, it was likely used to describe thestonemason/stone-work areas of London in the past. First appearedas a female name in the decade of 1970, that not so long ago.
