A to Z Challenge - Yo, You, Yeah I mean YOU

The end of the alphabet draws nigh, and I think as names in this world were created the energy spurt occurred from A to J.  Then it slowed down, uptick at S, and then folks lost interest for X, Y, and Z. But it is still April and we shall not yearn to quit.  Let's name some kids with Y

Yadon (Hebrew) the lord will judge
Yakar (Hebrew) one who is precious
Yale (Welsh) from the fertile upland.  Does this name give automatic entrance to the university?
Yancy (Indian) an Englishman
Yarrow (English) of the fragrant herb
Yates (English)  keeper of the gates
Ymir (Norse)  from mythology - a giant from whom the earth was created
Yrre (Anglo Saxon) an angry man
Yves (French) a young archer

Yadira (Hebrew) a beloved friend
Yang (Chinese) of the sun
Yolanda (Greek) violet flower
Yuna (African) a gorgeous woman
Yvonne (French) a young archer



  1. Yknot....indeed. Another creative group of names and I have to say Yolanda would round out the girls with a Spanish flair.

  2. I bet a lot of writers are jotting down these names. I am. :-)

  3. I have an Aunt Yvonne - you don't see that as often. Yale - I like it - especially if it comes with automatic entrance into the university. I knew I should have named my oldest Harvard ;)

  4. I guess I've always assumed Yancy was an English name. I'm surprised to see it's Indian.

  5. Never heard of it before, but now I know I like the name Yuna. This was a really great theme for a-z!
