    Name Meaning

    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.
