"My wife and I named our baby Yvonne. She is 4 months. I love the name. It's feminine, regal and classic. Shout out to all Yvonnes." Sep. 18, 2018:
"My grandma's name is Yvonne and she was born in 1928. I have always been extremely close to her because she lived across the driveway. Her nickname was always Bonnie and she Used Yvonne only for legal matters. Growing up I thought the name Yvonne was old fashioned and weird but now that I'm older,I think its beautiful. I plan on naming my first daughter Yvonne and calling her Bonnie in my Grandma's honor." Feb. 5, 2018:
"Yvonne is my first name. To avoid the whole pronunciation issue I have always gone by Von (Vonnie as a child). I'm starting to use my full name more often now tho. I have always loved the uniqueness of my name. However, I've just received a (male) student whose name is Von. This is a first for me!" Jun. 28, 2015:
"My name is Ivonne, which is the way alot of hispanics spell it. Not alot of Ivonnes when I was growing up. My biggest issue was that my name was mispelled often,still is, even by people who know how to spell "my" name. I had been called Evone, Evonne, Yvonne, Ivon, and even Ivan. Never bothered me. No nicknames, which at this point in my life, I don't care for. the story goes that it was an uncle who named me. I love my name!" Aug. 3, 2014:
"My name is Yvonne. AS a child I felt this was too girly because I was such a tomboy but ever since I can remember everyone called me Bonnie. I have known two other Yvonne's in my town and they are both also called Bonnie. I believe it came from the nickname "Vonnie". When I got to college I began using my name Yvonne for less confusion and I grew to love my name! So now, I am Yvonne everywhere except back home, I suddenly become Bonnie again lol. People become confused when someone introduces me as Bonnie and when they later ask for my name again I say Yvonne. I've had similar experiences with other Yvonne's as far as being called EEEEEE-von, Evan, Ivan, Ya-vonne, Y-vonne." Feb. 28, 2014:
"Also my name. Growing up I did get a lot of "ding dong, Avon's calling." No one does pronounce it the same, and restaurant reservations, and early days of the "fax cover sheet" I got a lot of Ivan, Evan, Evon. I prefer EE-vonne, but my family has always called my Ya-vonne, and Yuh-vonne. I have a co-worker who says A-vonna...I like them all. I don't care. It's a unique name and I've always loved it. The nicknames for me have been Ivan, I-bin, Why-vonne, Yo-vonne, I-vonne and Yo-Yo. Can count on one hand all the other Yvonnes I have met." Feb. 9, 2014:
"i think the name yvonne is sexy. eevon i pronounce it. i want a girlfriend named yvonne its unique and sexy. so you yvonnes out there email me and lets hit it off k. firstname.lastname@example.org i think yvonnes should have black hair lol. not important though." Dec. 18, 2013:
"Funny how other didn't like it either as a kid. Same here - like it as an adult. Rarely meet another Yvonne. Could count on 1 hand how many in 45 years. People ask me how to say it - I answer with an ee, uh, i or whatever - no two people ever say it the same and who cares - its always interesting. Been called: Goo (tennis!), Ivonde, Yalonda and Evan." Jul. 27, 2013:
"My first name is Yvonne (french pronunciation) and I absolutely can not stand when it is mispronounced or misspelled." May. 17, 2013:
"I'm an Yvonne and was told that since the name is French in origin, it would be pronounced with the E sound -- so EEvonne. It's a tough name for a little girl, but love it now. My nickname is Von" May. 2, 2013:
"In highschool I wasn't fond of my name, but in college I love it! I've learned to respect its unique-ness! My mom pronounces it EH-vonne or AH-vonne...but the rest of my family calls me bon or vonnie or bonbon. I think it's so cool that other Yvonne's have the same nicknames! Although out in public I always get called Evan so when I order something I just give out the name katie or another random name...makes it easier for the employees to say and I get a kick out of it :)" Nov. 30, 2012:
"i love my name (yvonne) it is uncommon in my place. i am the only one with this name in school and i really like it since i dont like to have the common with others. haha:D but! people always pronounce it wrong and spell it wrong. i never meet a person with the same name as mine till now (im in high school now). HAHA:D i prefer to be called with "yuh vonne" rather than "ee vonne". since my name is hard to pronounce my friends start giving me nicknames. i've been called with many names such as evonne, avon , ebon , bonbon. HAHAHHAHA:D" Aug. 15, 2011:
"Wow! so many coments about people pronouncing the name wrong!
my name is also yvonne(EEEvone) but people always pronounce it wrong! it actually drives me madd! but i think its a very unique name and im glad i have it(:" Nov. 29, 2010:
"My middle name is Yvonne. I've always loved it, but so many people pronounce it so differently. My mom died when I was 13 & a short time after, I was trying to remember if she told me that it's pronounced with a Y(yuh') or E(ee). The majority of the posts that I've read say that EEEvonne is correct. I actually prefer Yuh-vonne, but with my first name being Evelyn & last name being Ensor, I suppose EEEvonne sounds a heck of alot better. It has a nice ring. My initials eye just love. LOL" Nov. 14, 2010:
"Yvonne is my middle name. I love it! People are always telling me how cool it is." Jul. 21, 2010:
"my name is yvonne. i love that not everyone has this name, i hate very common names, my poor husband is stuck with jason, but we just call him jay to make it better" Dec. 29, 2009:
"My name's Yvonne too. Iused to not like it but know I'm ok with it. Many people pronounce it weird, my favorite is WHY-BON-EE" Oct. 11, 2009:
"Yvonne is my middle name, which is also my grandma's middle name. I really like this name, and have thought of using it instead of my first name, Holly. I pronounce it with the E at the beginning, and hate it when people say Y or i at the beginning! A good name for any age." Jul. 26, 2009:
"I proudly bear the name Yvonne. I never really liked it growing up, but now I am in love with such a unique name that I carry." Dec. 13, 2008:
"I was named Yvonne in 1981 and hated it growing up. Now I love it because it's unique and I've only met a handful of others with the same name. People don't usually pronounce it correctly, but I got used to that when I was a teenager =) Some of my nicknames include E, Eve, Y-vonne (sounds like why-vonne), Yo-vonne (haha), Vonne and Bon/Bonbon." Nov. 1, 2008:
"i too was the only Yvonne, except one company where there were 2 others! How wierd that was! I have heard my name pronounced with Y dominate or I or E, in the long run I don't care. Everyone says it differently. Yvonne also gives you tons of silly nick names, which were sometimes fun sometimes not as a kid, but today I enjoy it." May. 8, 2008:
"I love my name, too. But people always seem to spell it wrong, when you go to a restaurant. They'll spell it Evan or Ivan, so the order always comes out for the wrong person" May. 7, 2007:
"My name is Yvonne and like some others was the only one in my school, I loved it!
Many people drag out the Y on the beginning, sounding like Eeevonne. I hate this.
In my family it is pronounced Ivonne (i not I). I think it is a lovely suffsticated name." Oct. 12, 2006:
"My mom named me Yvonne in 1974 - it's definitely more common in Germany where I was born and grew up (it's a french name though) than in the US.
Here I've had people associating it with the russian "Ivana" which is a little annoying since "Yvonne" is not pronounced like the "a" in Ivana but more subdued with the "o" (something like "eevonne" ;)" Jun. 11, 2006:
"My name is Yvonne also, I am from Norway in Europe, where the Y is pronouced as E." Jun. 1, 2006:

Mom told me I was born after the Dion twins cuz it was a name she thought was beautiful and Historic The First woman to give birth to 5 girls with the 1st one named Yvonne, Sad to say the Quintuplets were put on display due to being rare back in the day!

"I?ve always found my name to be very French...Yvonne Desiree. I?m not French. Lol my mom had a thing about French names, but I sound so important. Again lol. If only I?d been a movie star I wouldn?t have had to change my name. But why is it so hard for people to spell it? Evon, Avon, Lavonne...it?s always entertaining. And pronouncing it, equally as hilarious...Yaaahvonne, EEEEEEEvonne...crap just call me Y." Nov. 30, 2018:
"I received the name Yvonne in the Netherlands when I was born during WWII. My mother did not like Dutch names but loved French names hence, Yvonne. I was the only one during my years in school with that name. Hated it when I was young. Now? It's ok" Oct. 30, 2015:

"My name is is Yvonne and growing up my aunt always called me Ivy or Ivo as a nickname. It's. What i prefer to be called to this day.I noticed someone else mentioned it too." Jul. 31, 2014:
"Ivy and ivo were nicknames as a child and thats what i prefer to be called. Not yvonne real name." Aug. 11, 2013:
"The only correct way to pronounce Yvonne is with an E sound at the beginning. The Y is a vowel like the Y in baby - not a consonant like the Y in yellow. Please, if you want to call yourself Yavonne , then spell it that way. If you want to call yourself Whyvonne or Wivonne, then spell it that way. Otherwise, you are mispronouncing your own name!" Aug. 7, 2012:
"I'm an Yvonne (pronounced the French way--long ee) and the name is always written incorrectly whenever I give my name for a restaurant reservation. I always have to be listening for Ivan! I got a lot of the Avon Lady teasing as a child and have to say to this day I don't love it." Jan. 30, 2011:

"i have always told them... evon avon lavon jus dont call me late for supper!" Feb. 9, 2009:
"In the 1970's I was born Yvonne. I, like many, was the only one in my school with the name. I hate being called Yuhvonne and Avon. Spelling can be a challenge for many; Ivan, Evon, Yuvonne. My favorite pronunciation though is when why neice and nephews call me aunty Ebon. I live in an Italian community and I am commonly called Yvonna (Evonna), which I don't mind. I have met 3 other Yvonnes in 30 odd years. I disliked my name for many years but I now bear the name proudly!" Dec. 13, 2008:
"Most popular between the 1930s and 1960s, but less common today than it was back then. American actress Yvonne Craig, born in 1937, became a household name in the third - and sadly also the last - series of the Batman TV series of the 1960s with Adam West as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Burt Ward as Robin/Dick Grayson. Miss Craig's character was Commissioner Gordon's daughter Barbara, also known as Batgirl." Apr. 28, 2008:
"my friend doesnt like her name but i think its cool" Feb. 22, 2008:
"Yvonne is my name and I pronounce it with the "Y" sound at the beginning. Like "Yavon". I hate when people call me Evonne!! I love my name though because it is not very common." Dec. 29, 2005:
"With me people say it wrong, they try to put a y sound at the beginning but really it is pronounced like it has an e at the beginning" Oct. 17, 2005:
"My name is Yvonne, I like it because it's not common.I was always the only one in school with my name.However people commonly mispronounce it by saying yuvonne which is very annoying.
Y before v is correctly pronounced as E, so it should always be pronounced as "Evonne" !!!" Jun. 28, 2005:
