Shirley雪莉英 ['ʃɜ:lɪ]美 ['ʃɜ:rlɪ]
灑滿陽光的草地,Shirley 既是女子名又是姓氏，來源於古英語，含義為“燦爛的+開墾”。SHIRLEY(老式英語)"來自耀眼的牧場"。人們將SHIRLEY描繪成灰發版的Shirley Temple-可愛，甜美，捲髮，娃娃臉，有點過重。
Shirley Temple almost single-handedly lifted the gloom of the Great Depression, and in tribute (and perhaps wishing for a similarly curly-headed, dimpled darling of their own), thousands of parents of that generation gave their little girls her name. In 1935, Shirley was the second most popular girls' name in the country with more than 42,000 babies named Shirley.
In an earlier time Shirley was used primarily for boys, but the tide turned with the publication of Charlotte Bronte's novel Shirley in 1849, the story of a character whose parents had selected the name for a boy child, then decided to use it anyway when he turned out to be a she.
In addition to Shirley Temple, there have been Shirleys MacLaine and Jones and writer Shirley Jackson, as well as rocker Shirley Manson.
