Etymology of the name IVES.
Meaning of the baby name IVES.

  

IVES.  English name of Teutonic origin, derived from iv ("yew"), rendered "bowman," or "archer," because the weapon was made from yew wood.  Also spelled YvesIvette is a feminine form. 

    It is possible that Ivhar is the real origin of Ives, the saint who named the town in Huntingdonshire; but legend strangely makes him a Persian bishop, who chose that locality for a hermitage, in the seventh century, and whose body was discovered uncorrupt in the year 1001, thus providing a patron for many an Ivar of Danish or Norman extraction, who became Yvon, or Ivone, in France; and Ivo in the chroniclers. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
