- Comments and insights on the name Chelsea: | Edit
I was named Chelsea 75 years ago this december (2011). Until "On Golden Pond," the movie, came out I had almost exclusive use of it. There was a trumpet teacher, some many years after i was a musician, who taught at Langston U. in Oklahoma. There was a Chelsea on Laugh-In all those years ago. Another Chelsea was symphony director for the Tulsa Philharmonic.
Chelsea @ Langston, Chelsea with the Tulsa Phil and me are all MEN!

Chelsea Clinton is the name of Bill and Hilary Clinton's daughter; weirdly enough Chelsea Clinton is also the proper name for a neighborhood in Manhattan that is more commonly known as Hell's Kitchen.
Actually, Hell's Kitchen & Chelsea overlap but are separate neighborhoods. Real estate types have tried to rename Hell's Kitchen "Clinton" but I don't know anyone who lives here that calls it that.
