The Spanish version means ‘violet flower’.

Eeew, can't stand this name.

A famous bearer was Yolanda King, oldest daughter of Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King, who recently died of a heart attack at the age of 51.

This name probably derives from another name, Iolanthe, which means "violet." The first part of this name, "Yo-" may come from "Io-," "-lan-" from "-lan-," and "-da" from "-the."

There is something about this name that I find really beautiful.
-- Hola123  7/5/2007
This is my cousin's middle name, Maria Yolanda. I think it's kind of Italian sounding, but my cousin's last also is Italian, so that's probably why I think that. Anyway, it's a pretty unusual name, but very elegant.

I've heard the nickname Lolly used for Yolanda.
-- sharonrenee  8/10/2007
Yolanda Adams, the singer, bears this name.

My mother started to name me this and I wish she had. I think this name is so pretty and delicate.
-- Honeyrose  8/20/2007
I think it means "land of violets" in Greek.

Yolanda is a sweet name, especially for a little girl. My cousin is Yolanda.

Yolanda evolved from the Spanish Violante, which is a very old name, borne by medieval princesses and queens but virtually disapeared nowadays. Also the most usual short name in Spanish is Yoli.

In the Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo, Yolanda Yewbeam was Charlie's great-great-great aunt. She was evil and probably killed Charlie's great-grandmother, Solange, at her castle. Yolanda had two endowments: shape-shifting and hypnotising. In 'Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy' or 'Charlie Bone and the Blue Boa' Yolanda shape-shifted into a young girl who went by the name Belle Donner (which Nimmo got from 'belladonna' the other name for deadly nightshade.) Yolanda was eventually electrocuted by Paton Yewbeam, her great nephew.

Yolanda Saldivar, the person who killed singer Selena, is a kinda famous bearer.
-- jasmineenimsaj  3/22/2008
I've always found this name ugly. I associate it with old and unattractive women.

There's a song by Pablo Milanes called "Yolanda". It's a very beautiful love-song and it was the reason for me to call my daughter Yolanda.
-- Anonymous User  6/14/2008
I think this name is very ugly. I would never name my daughter this.
-- snickerdoodle  7/24/2008
Ew. Sounds like the name of a fat German lady who dances around tables with her hair in braids. No offense to any Yolandas out there, you make your own name. I'm just saying.
-- GreekMythology  8/7/2008
Not too pretty. I have seen people nicknamed Yoyo.
-- reina  11/2/2008
I really like this name. It wouldn't be my first choice if I ever had a daughter, but I would consider it. I've noticed that it appears to be much more popular with Hispanics than with Caucasians.
-- Anonymous User  1/3/2009
Something about this name I just don't like. I also associate this name with yellow for an unknown reason.
-- thecookiemonster  2/14/2009
There is a Fountains of Wayne song about a lady named "Yolanda Hayes".
-- ICEyun  3/10/2009
I don't know what, but there's something about this name I just don't like. Maybe the 'anda' part at the end, but I'm not so sure.
-- -Julia-  8/19/2009
People don't like this name. But I think it is pretty cool-- like Avery I don't know "bad girl" type of name. Not just another Emily or Emma in the crowd. A stand out.
-- italiannames  10/24/2009
"Honey Bunny"'s real name in Pulp Fiction.

Australian band Yolanda Be Cool who, along with DCUP, released We No Speak Americano.
-- Anonymous User  10/19/2010
Ghetto-sounding-ish yet European. Hard to describe...
-- cookiefonster1015  3/26/2013
Ehh... I don't really like this name. The spelling is ugly and if I hear the name and think of it with this spelling, it sounds ugly too. Like I picture an overweight woman with a double chin (No offense to anyone with this name, cause you might not look like that at all).
But somehow, if I hear it and think of it spelled Iolanda, it all of a sudden sounds beautiful, like an ancient princess even.
-- Anonymous User  11/1/2013
I LOVE this name! It's very unusual plus it starts with the letter 'y'- a letter which I usually find hard to appreciate much as a beginning letter for a name.

I really dislike this name. I don't know what it is about it, but it sounds really ugly. I have a friend who has this name and she goes by Yoyo.
-- AbbyDanyelle  6/17/2015
This name screams African-American.
-- TyrannosaurusRegina  10/1/2015
Yolanda is a very beautiful name and so are the mothers who name their child Yolanda. I have never seen an unattractive person named Yolanda.
-- sweet aries  2/28/2016
The name Yolanda was given to 106 girls born in the US in 2015.
