Favorite names containing "Y"

My SO and I both have Y’s in our names. I have a few names in my lists that contain Y’s but though I’d try and collect a few more! What other names with “Y” in them do you like?

My favorites,

Boys:

[name_m]Wesley[/name_m]
[name_m]Emrys[/name_m]
[name_u]Finley[/name_u]

Girls:

[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]
[name_u]Ellery[/name_u]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f]

*Names that contain Y but don’t end in Y would be preferred.

Thanks all!
