Personal experiences with the name Yvette: | Edit

This is my aunt's name. Her family lived in Egypt but her siblings were being educated at a French Catholic school when she was born.

This was my husband's paternal grandmother's name. Similar sounding to my own middle name (Yvonne) that comes from my maternal grandmother. We are considering using Yvette and Yvonne as middle names for our two girls.
