    Ives

    What do you think of the name Ives?

    What middle name would you pair with it? I'm having trouble finding something that flows with that pesky s on the end!

    I prefer Yves to Ives. I'm already hearing 'When I was going to St Ives...' in my head

    I think it would go over much better in a French speaking area. I have a French-Canadian friend who married a Chinese woman. They named their son Yves... it took a long time for all of the English-speaking foreigners to get it down. I feel like it's a name that you more often see written than actually hear used. I'd personally use it as a mn. Otherwise, it just seems most natural paired with a French name... like Yves Pierre...
