Personal experiences with the name Selby: | Edit

I knew a five year old name Selby, and she was so cute!

My Great great great grandfather was Selby and it was one of the family names I would always discuss with my grandmother as one I would use "one day " for a boy or a girl. She was really into genealogy and had our family history written out for many many generations. My husband isn't convinced... But it's very sentimental to me .
