Noun: derived from the Latin 'Filia Satraps' meaning simply: "Daughter of Governor".

The phrase Selby is often mistaken for a male who wears gay clothing, infact it means the complete opposite: a female with raw swagga. Selbys are also pro at art and often take photographs of the rear end of cats.

A Selby is often known for her pranking abilities, her favourite pranks include the fat from bacon being draped over certain objects, a door handle, a shoe.. a shoulder.

Selbys often have an extreme dislike for veins, spiders and damp dustsheets among other things. However a Selby often enjoys creating videos depicting herself as a disabled child or as a pro dancer/skateboarder.

Selbys are noted to have the ability to stay awake until the early hours of the day, talking to Mayells about a wide variety of subjects including hilarious facebook groups that she has discovered or new amazing tunes until her neck begins to break and her typing ability degrades to a mash of buttons.

Common names associated with Selby: Alex, Alec, Betty, Betty Swollocks, Selbs, Mary, Ash.
"Mate, I see Selby the other day laying all in these wet dustsheets, she tried to rip out and eat my veins."

often used for ultra-cynical young males who decide to become priests because they can't stand the idea of living with anyone other than celibate men; men who pride themselves on being homosexual as a facade for their deliberate platonic promiscuity; men who often display signs of jealousy when his other brother seminarians have managed to gain the attention of a hot girl and he hasn't.
Example 1:
Friend #1: Oh, that girl looks so good!
Friend #2: Damn, she's hot but there is no way I'd live with her.

Friend #1: You are such a Selby.

Example 2:

Man, our parish priest is a Selby, he hit on me and my daughter on the same day

Example 3:
Seminarian #1: Get off the computer! You shouldn't be talking to a girl on SKYPE. You're breaking your vow.

Seminarian#2: Don't be such a Selby dude!
