Ylva means “she-wolf” in some language that you and I don’t speak.  Obviously, this is a fantastic reason to use it as your daughter’s name.

The problem is that no one can pronounce it.  I tried, and instead of sounding like a pretty little girl’s name, it sounded like I was regurgitating a tennis ball.

It sounds too much like vulva, which is a word used to describe female genitalia.
