I’m pretty sure Yui is a Korean Name too given by one of the characters in a Korean comic book, I could be wrong though.

Yui is a nice name for me, but could seem too anime for me to use for an actual kid, so I’ll stick to more European names. I hope for people who do name their kids this that it’s in association with Yui from K-ON, a ditzy but nice and funny character over Yui from the terrible, generic and messed-up of a show that is Sword Art Online (both literally and metaphorically).

Yui Mizuno is a Japanese idol, singer and model. She is a member of the heavy metal group Babymetal and a former member of the girl group Sakura Gakuin. On August 2, 2010, at the age of 11, Yui Mizuno, at the same time with Moa Kikuchi, joined Sakura Gakuin, an idol group managed by the talent agency Amuse. The group had not yet released its debut single. The group members were also divided into smaller subgroups, so-called clubs. Each club had its own musical group that recorded its own songs. Kikuchi and Mizuno first became members of the "Baton Club" and its musical group Twinklestars and later together with Suzuka Nakamoto formed a heavy music club and its heavy metal-themed group Babymetal. Before the heavy music club was created by the management, none of the three heavy music club members knew what heavy metal was.

I absolutely LOVE this name! It's simple, but adorable and it always makes me think of Yui, an AI (Artificial intelligence) from Sword Art Online!

This name seems to be very popular in anime. Some characters with the name, that haven't been mentioned yet, are Yui from Angel Beats, Yui Funami from YuruYuri, Yui from Sword Art Online, Yui Yuigahama from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU. I'm sure there's several others.

Yui is a very pretty name and used for lots of anime and manga characters...

I'm not Japanese though, so I would not use this name as it seems like it'd be too otaku-esque. It seems a bit hard to pronounce for those unfamiliar with Japanese sounds as well.
