I really like [name]Ivette[/name]! Sounds similar to [name]Charlotte[/name], and could have [name]Ivy[/name] or [name]Eva[/name] as a nn. I’ve heard people on here say they don’t like it, any specific reasons? thanks!

I really like [name]Ivette[/name] too, especially as a mn, but I prefer the [name]Yvette[/name] spelling. Or do I? Hmm, not sure lol.

I’m not a fan of the name generally. A couple negative associations with a few [name]Yvette[/name]'s I knew in a former office. Awful, horrible women. Ugh.

However, I really, really like the spelling you have. So much nicer with the I instead of usual Y. [name]Eva[/name] would be a cute nn.

[name]Ivette[/name] looks mispelled to me because I am used to [name]Yvette[/name]. [name]Yvette[/name] is kind of pretty, in [name]France[/name] it is considered very dated, but may be refreshing in an Anglophone country. I also really like the Czech form of Iveta.

I like both spellings a lot. :slight_smile:

I’m not familiar with [name]Ivette[/name]-- is it a long i sound? I am, however, a big big fan of [name]Yvette[/name], which yes, sounds dated in [name]France[/name], but has a fresh vintage sound in the US. You’d probably have to correct some people who seem to think it’s pronounced “yuh-vet,” but it’s worth the hassle. I know a precious little toddler who’s called [name]Yvette[/name] after her French-Canadian grandmother, and the rest of the siblings in the family were quite put out that [name]Yvette[/name] was now “taken” and none of them could use it. :slight_smile:
