Travis Kelce continues to confuse everyone when it comes to his name pronunciation
What color is the dress, Travis?
Travis Kelce made some waves in recent days after revealing that his name — usually dictated as “Kel-see” — may actually be pronounced “Kells,” leading to hilarious interactions between he and his quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, and general confusion to the rest of the NFL world.
On Thursday, the Chiefs tight end did his best to clear up the confusion, but may have actually just confused more people in the process.

So, in a nutshell: Both “Kel-see” and “Kells” are, bizarrely, correct; his father’s side of the family, though, says “Kells,” which further complicates matters, rather than fixing them at all.
He also says one is a “real name” and one is a “nickname” but didn’t clarify which is which. Come on, Travis, pick one!
We’ll see how Ian Eagle, Jim Nantz and the rest of the NFL broadcast crew handle this during the 2021 season.
It doesn’t matter what you call him, though, as long as you call him one of the best tight ends in football.
