Y IS FOR YOUNG ADULT NAMES

Y, OH Y!!

Alas, after a month of searching, I couldn't find any characters with a "Y" name. I have decided that this must be remedied immediately. So, I am going to use this post to share some fantastic "Y" names so my writer friends might possible use them in the future.  So, are you ready?

POSSIBLE "Y" NAMES FOR YA:

YALE
YANCY
YANKA
YANNI
YASMIN
YETTA
YVETTE

And the best YA name for a character that begins with "Y": *drumrolls*

YOGI

After I wrote this post, my students informed me that they knew of a character with a "Y" name.  I said, "Really?", and they said that I had read them the book.  I was gobsmacked.  I couldn't remember to save my life, so I asked them which book. And they were right, in the book, Hank Zipzer #6: HOLY ENCHILADA by Henry Winkler (Yes, the FONZ), there was a character by the name of Yoshi Morimoto.  So, I stand corrected. Thanks kids!
