Popularity:5371
Origin:Greek
Other Origin(s):Spanish; Latin
Meaning:Violet Flower
A feminine name of Greek, Spanish, and Latin origin, Yolanda has a soft and sprightly lilt that matches its charming meaning, “violet flower.” The movie Yolanda and the Thief introduced this classic name to the masses in the mid-20th century, and you might recognise it from Yolanda (a.k.a Honey Bunny) from Pulp Fiction or even Yolanda Hadid, model mother of Bella and Gigi. However, it has lost popularity in recent times, but it certainly deserves a comeback, and you deserve the opportunity to kick start a brand new ultraviolet trend!
