Shirley Club USA

5 Shirleys meet at the first Shirley Club USA lunch.

The Shirley Club USA is a same-name membership club which was founded in Missouri in May, 2009.  Members receive a Shirley Club USA shirt, personalized name tag, social cards, and newsletters featuring special news items from members, jokes, recipes and news about what Shirleys have been up to in the past few months.  

The name Shirley became very popular in the 1930's.  Parents fell in love with the child actress Shirley Temple and began naming their little girls after her.  I know I was named after her and after growing up with the Shirley Temple movies I now watch them with my grandchildren. 

Many of the members did not know another Shirley before joining this club. There are Shirley Clubs in Australia and New Zealand.  The USA club has provided the means for Shirleys to reach out to others here at home and around the world with their same name and get to know one another.  It's quite simple really, their common bond?  Their name! 

If you go by the name “Shirley,” we’d love to hear from you!

In Shirley Friendship,
