    Name Meaning

    German: possibly a habitational name from a place so called in Westphalia.Swedish (Sellén): ornamental name probably formed with the placename element sel ‘stretch of smooth water’ + the suffix -én, a derivative of Latin -enius.English (Kent): habitational name from Selling or Sellindge (both Kent), though the distribution suggests that the former is the more likely source of the surname. Both placenames probably mean ‘the companions, the people who share a dwelling’, from Old English setl, sedl ‘abode, dwelling’ + the groupname suffix -ingas.
