Comments for YAEL:

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.

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.
