Hi! I'm Shaneli
Yep, just like Chanel. My dad really liked the brand in the ‘80s, and came up with my name. It doesn’t really mean anything, as far as I know.
I’ve heard every variation of it and read every different spelling of it. I once worked for a Managing Editor who kept spelling my name wrong in the email address field, and so I never received anything from him. Oops. I’ve even had PR reps email me, starting, “Dear Mr. Li…” Insert face palm emoji. I’m not a man, there isn’t a missing Y or a missing L in my name; it’s just Shaneli.
