Having lived with someone called "Mi" for a month, I know all of the confusion that "Yu" is capable of causing. Don't go for it, unless you want to keep having to call your child "Y-U" all the time.

But Bschoer, if the person lives in China, I am sure it would be a great name.

It is actually pronounced as the French "une" sound without nasalization.

I like the meaning of this name.

Can be a last name. Also, in Chinese it's not pronounced like "you" but its hard to describe how to say it. "Yiuhr"? It's hard to type out.

From Chinese ‰F "universe" or ‹Ê "jade" or –ù "happy, pleased" or ‰J "rain". Because for Chinese, different words may have the same pronunciation, but they have different meanings.

This element is in my favourite Chinese girl's name, Miaoyu. In a Chinese name book I own, it's translated as "pretty as fine jade". Jade is my favourite jewel - I love its colour, its beauty, its hardness and its significance in different cultures. I find it a lot more beautiful and pleasing than diamond or emerald. If I ever move to China, I'll call my daughter Miaoyu. I'd love her to be as pretty as jade.

There was an empress of the Chinese Jin dynasty called Yu Wenjun (formally Empress Mingmu).

My advice: do not use it in an English-speaking environment. It is hard to pronounce and people think it's pronounced the same way as "you."

I'm a girl of Chinese origin and my name is Yu Xuan. Xuan is a type of plant that symbolizes happiness and Yu means rain. I like my name very much even if it's getting more and more popular, it sounds cute to me without being too juvenile.

My Chinese name is 張仲妤, the last character being pronounced 'Yu' (in canto at least), and I think it's pretty enough :-))
