Yvonne Origin and Meaning

The name Yvonne is a girl's name of French origin meaning "yew wood".

Peaking in the 1950s, Yvonne has now dropped out of the Top 1000 in 2003 and doesn't look set to return soon, although its rare Y initial might endear it to some. Yvaine, from Neil Gaiman's Stardust, has more modern appeal.
