Yevette is a feminine name that acts as a fun spin on the French name Yvette. Coming from the name Yves and the German word iwa, it translates to “yew tree” and is sure to encourage baby’s inner tree hugger. The yew tree was a vital tool back in the day, with its bark being the primary material for archery bows and other weapons. For a spookier aesthetic, the yew tree was also known to symbolize immortality and resurrection. If you’re looking to give baby a name with an old-school aesthetic, Yevette was at its most popular in the late 1960s. The name Yevette has an elegant ring to it, and its vintage feel and earthy meaning can give your little one plenty to work with.
