At first glance I thought it was pronounced IV-ves ('I' sounding like the letter 'I' in 'internet' and 'ves' rhyming with the word 'mess'.). I did not expect it to be said as "Eve", lol. It doesn't sound that bad for a guy I guess. I love how the letters look together and the meaning is actually quite nice. =)

In America, this would easily get mispronounced. But ignoring that fact and just focusing on the pronunciation, I like this name. Probably because it sounds like eve, which I like as well. Although... I know everyone says it's a boy's name, but I just can't imagine it on a boy. Probably because the name eve is used for girls.

Yves Klein was a French artist, and a leading figure in the Nouveau Réalisme movement. He patented the color known as International Klein Blue, which looks similar to the color of lapis lazuli.
He's actually one of my favorite artists, and seeing a display of his work at a young age really turned me on to the world of art. He's a huge inspiration for me ^_^

I like the fact that it is pronounced eve and a boy's name at the same time. If I had a son name Yves, I'd have a desire to nickname him Evie but I wouldn't be sure how to spell it. Overall, it's a great name. Very French and classical.

It'd be nice if a girl were named this because it sounds like EVE. Yves, I love it!
