My name is actually Yori Spelled exactly like this Y-O-R-I. I used to think my name was stupid and ugly but I've learned to love my name by reading all of these comments and the "backstory" as I call it, of my name.

I have actually met a Yori, who spelled it with an umlaut over the 'o'. Not Japanese, but Icelandic.

Yori was used as a girl's name back in the olden days. Based on some research that I've done (gathering names from passenger lists and US census data), Yori was uncommon in the late Edo period and the Meiji period. Those that do have the name were more likely to have theirs written in kana.

This goes back to the fact that 2 syllable names were preferred at the time, more so before the Meiji period. Towards the 2nd half of the Meiji period and the Taishō period, those types of names were quickly shunted out in popularity by names ending in *ko.

"Yori" alone is usually used as a boy's name, but most female "Yori"s are simply called "Yori" as a nickname. The most common real "Yori" names for girls are ones like "Sayori" or "Yoriko."

I've never met anyone named just "Yori". Some women are named Yoriko though. One kanji for "yori" means order/honest.
