One of the most challenging decisions you need to make after having a baby is choosing a name. Some parents decide to name their child after a family member or someone they admire. Others take a unique approach to naming their children after a particular letter.
The letter Y isn’t much used for a baby girl’s name, and this is what makes it exceptional. So if Y for the start of a name is what you’re looking for, then you’re in luck. MomJunction's tool has a comprehensive list of baby names starting with the letter Y. But before that, take a look at the attributes and traits the letter can bring to your child.
The letter Y gives determination, spiritual, and physical energy to the bearer. So if you bestow a name with this initial on your daughter, she’ll be very intelligent, analytical, and will have a burning desire to shine in her profession. Girls with this initial are even blessed with an innate ability to find a solution to all their problems.
The negative point of this letter is that the bearer may waste their time in overthinking. This can make them appear confused and vague to people who do not know them well.
Whether you’re looking for serene Islamic names or exotic Spanish girl names starting with Y, you’ll find them all in MomJunction's list below.
