Other Origin(s):Native American
Let baby's imagination run wild with the masculine name Yantsey. This rare gem derives from Yancey, possibly a Native American term for "Englishman." Yancey may have been misheard by English settlers, giving us the word "Yankee" for settlers of New England. This name is shared with actress Yancey Butler and former pro footballer Yancey Thigpen. It's also the hero in Edna Ferber's novel Cimarron, set during the Oklahoma Land Rush. With its elusive past, Yantsey invites baby to become the author of their own fantastical narrative!
