Jelle is a Dutch male given name, rarely also given to women.

The origin of the name lies in Friesland, although the name is quite commonly used throughout the Netherlands and Flanders. The name comes from the Dutch word "geld", more probable the Frisian word "jild", meaning "money", "value", "payment", "revenge", or "festival of sacrifice". In the southern Netherlands, Jelle is also an abbreviation for Willem.
