Yves is a boy’s name of French origin. This unusual but charming name means “yew,” an evergreen tree with red berries and sharp needles, once used to make archery bows. Although known as a poisonous plant, yews were ubiquitous characters in old folklore, symbolizing death and resurrection. Today, these trees grow to great ages, representing longevity. Your little one will also be sharing swanky ties with luxury fashion mogul Yves Saint Laurent, giving them a sturdy launchpad to shoot for the stars. With an etymology as powerful as this, baby Yves will be a force to be reckoned with.
