Okay so I came across some names that DH hasn't said no to original.gif

What are your thoughts on the names Yasmin or Yvonne for our baby due in 3 wks...
We don't know if it's a boy or girl but would like to be prepared wink.gif

Also it would be a sibset to Daphne and I would like a one syllable middle name to go with it...

Please help original.gif

With Daphne, I like Yvonne. If you are looking for a Y name, what about Yvette? I also like Daphne and Heather together.

I love Yasmin and have an (adult) friend by this name who is a lovely, peaceful, gorgeous woman!

I just thought I'd pass on a story - the lady who made my sister's wedding dress was called Yvonne and I always recall her telling us that when people asked for her first initial (for forms, or legal paperwork etc) and she said "Y", she always got irritated looks (people thought she was asking "Why?"). It just came to mind when I saw the two "Y" names!

Good luck choosing...

I love Yvonne, I have a very special Auntie(cousin really) with that name.  

Truth be told she is 99/100 times called Bonnie but still!

Wow single sylable girls names are hard! All I can come up with are:

Maeve
Maude
and the ever present Jane...

I really like your style.  Either would go well.  Maybe Yasmin just a touch better.  Assuming that you don't mind either way the sisters both being 'florals'.


MNs:

Ruth
Lark
Britt
Leigh
Rhyll
Kaye
Joy
Clare
Gwyn
Greer
Pearl
Jewel
Wren

Yasmin reminds me of contraceptive, but it's a nice name. Yvonne and Daphne are great together though.

I like Yvonne because I have a beautiful (inside and out) colleague by that name.

Yasmin reminds me of the contraceptive pill Tounge1.gif

Yasmin is gorgeous but I'd be pretty disappointed if my sister got Yasmin and I was Daphne.

Yvonne is ok and much better suited to Daphne for me so I'm going to vote for that.

With a 1 syllable middle name I would go for:
Yvonne May
Yvonne June
Yvonne Jane
Yvonne Joan
Yvonne Pearl
Yvonne Alice... these types of names.

Yvonne is very very dated.

Not a fan of Yasmin at all. Prefer Jasmin.

Of the two, Yasmin except it reminds me of birth control.

My favourite Y names for girls are Yael and Yonina. Yael is two syllables, yah-el not unlike Joelle or Noelle or whatever.

One syllable middles:
Blythe
Mae
Rae
Claire
Brook
Fern
Faith
Eve

Yasmin Elle
Yasmin Faye
Yasmin Joan
Yasmin Jane

Agree with this.

I like the suggestions of Kate, Clare, Ruth and Faith as MNs with Yasmin.

Posted 17 January 2013 - 02:15 PM

I like both (and also like Jasmine).. but the fact that Yasmin is commonly spelt 2 ways puts me off a little (often spelt Yasmine).. as well as the association with the pill. So my vote is Yvonne!
However, I like both names original.gif
