Named my daughter Yael because it was a character in a Herman Wouk book I had just read (she was a tall blonde Israeli lieutenant). I later found out biblically that Yael was credited with killing Cicero (leader of the occupying army) by luring him into her tent with her wiley feminine ways and killing him. This began many years of peace because of his death. She is tall and blonde but not yet a lieutenant.

It was Sisera who was killed by Yael (or Jael), not Cicero (different guy altogether).

Pronounced yah-ehl.

This is my favourite Biblical character, and I think that "Ya'el" is much prettier than "Jael".

I like this name, along with its anglicized variant, Jael, but it may be mispronounced as "Yale," which is okay, but not nearly as gorgeous as the proper pronunciation.

It's the name of Israeli actress and model Yael Abecassis.

My Hebrew name is Yael. It is pronounced like it is spelled. Ya(a is in apple)-el.

Yael Naïm is the singer of the incredibly catchy song "New Soul" from the MacBook Air commercials.

I bet she'll go to Harvard. I know that's not how this name is said, but that is how it looks.

I never knew about this name until Yael Naim. I think its really pretty and something you don't hear everyday.

Yael is my name! A lot of people pronounce it as Yale, which is extremely annoying. It's pronounced as Yah-el. And I've never met anyone with the name Jael.

I can imagine there being a lot of people who would never be able to pronounce this name. It's pretty, but there'll be a lot of Yales in a Yaels future.

I really like this name and the sound of it but I think it kind of sounds like ya'all.

Lovely strong name. I know a Yael with a French mother - her name is spelled Yaelle and I think that is the French version. It has the merit of making the pronunciation clearer.

Hello everybody! This name is carried by me and I really am proud of my name. I like the story of it and the meaning as well, also the sound of Yael. The thing about the pronunciation...in the English speaking room, people have troubles speaking my name right, but in the German language, where I live, they say Ya'el and that's perfect. I just can recommend that name as a human being called Yael.

If said as Ya-el, sounds a lot like Yell to me.

Yael is a beautiful name, it is a very brave name. The name Yael makes me think of the name Warrior. Yael is a very beautiful name to have, it has flaws that others don't. Also it is cool since it has a "y" in it, no name has a "y" in it.

In France, Yaël is used for both girls and boys, although the boys' name and the girls' name come from separate sources. As a girls' name, it's fairly common in the Jewish community - both female Yaëls I know are Jewish. As a boys' name, it's probably a modern name created to sound similar to other -aël names popular among boys.

Yael Grobglas is a French-Israeli actress. Her first major role was in three seasons of the Israeli sci-fi TV series Ha'Yi, which established her popularity among Israel's teenage audiences. She gained recognition for her debut film role in the first Israeli horror film Rabies, which participated in the Tribeca Film Festival, and a number of other venues internationally. Through 2010–11 Grobglas performed a number of lead and supporting roles in prime time Israeli television shows, including in the sitcom Ha-Shualim, Ramzor, and Hatzuya. Grobglas is also known for her role as "The Girl" in the interactive video of We the Kings "Say You Like Me\". And as Gabi in the popular Israeli series Tanuhi. It was announced on 22 February 2013 that the actress was cast in the lead role of "America Singer" in The CW's second pilot for The Selection, though that was ultimately not picked up as a television series. That same year, Grobglas was cast for The CW's's Reign as Olivia, an Italian born noblewoman who is an old flame of Prince Francis.
