Origin and popularity of the name IVES

Origin

Ives : English (of Norman origin) and French: from the Old French personal name Ive Yve(s) (of which Ivon was originally an inflected form) with genitival or post-medieval excrescent -s. The name common among the Normans and Bretons was originally of Breton origin and derived ultimately from a British Celtic (or perhaps Gaulish) stem ib- ‘yew’. This surname is very rare in France; in North America it may thus in some cases (also) be an altered form of the variant Yves.
