Origin:French
Meaning:yew or archer
Ivette is a French girl’s name that means “yew” or “archer.” This meaning has its roots in historic weaponry craftsmanship, which will undoubtedly imbue baby Ivette with a warrior woman spirit. In Medieval Europe, longbows were made from the wood of yew trees. The heartwood was used for strength, while the sapwood allowed for flexibility—two principles needed not just in archery, but in life! Apart from making her a balanced yet badass young lady, Ivette will also give baby a chic, European flair. An alternate spelling of Yvette, Ivette will have baby (and you) longing for sun-drenched days relaxing on the French Riviera.
