No, Ylva is certainly not pronounced like "YOOL-va". The German Ü and the French U are not pronounced like "OO". Günther is not "gonter" in German, and the French Julie is not pronounced like the English Julie.

For English speakers, who have not learnt the Swedish Y-sound, it is best to pronounce it "ILL-vah".
