Meaning of the baby name YVETTE.

  

YVETTE.  Feminine diminutive form of French Yves (q.v.), of Teutonic origin, from iv ("yew"), rendered "bow," or "archer," because the weapon was made from yew wood.  Also see Evette and Ivette.  Usage: America, Australia, Belgium, England, France, Great Britain, New Zealand.

That was Yvette.  The blithe Ambassadeurs
Glitters, this Sunday of the Fête des Fleurs;
Here are the flowers, too, living flowers that blow
A night or two before the odours go;
And all the flowers of all the city ways
Are laughing, with Yvette, this day of days.
Laugh, with Yevette?  But I must first forget
Before I laugh, that I have heard Yvette.
For the flowers fade before her; see, the light
Dies out of that poor cheek, and leaves it white;
She sings of life, and mirth, and all that moves
Man's fancy in the carnival of loves;
And a chill shiver takes me as she sings
The pity of unpitied human things. 1894.
(Colour studies in Paris, Symons, 1918)
