Meaning:yew
Yvette is a French girl’s name with a subtly urbane and sophisticated sound. The female variant of Yves, Yvette means “yew,” making it a great choice if you want to give baby a meaningful plant name. Yews are slow-growing evergreen trees that are known for their durability and long lives. Traditionally, they were used to make longbows. This could account for Yvette’s other meaning, which is “archer.” If your bundle of joy is a Sagittarius—the Archer in the Astrological calendar—or if you like the idea of her growing into a strong female warrior, then Yvette is a bull’s eye.
