Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Yamilet

Yamilet and Yamileth are newly coined Spanish names inspired by Yamila. Yamila is the Spanish equivalent of the Arabic Jamila from Jamil (جميل) meaning “beautiful”. Yamilet and Yamileth are merely elaborations of Yamila. Arabic names are not altogether foreign to the Spanish ear considering the Muslim Moors occupied the Iberian Peninsula for over seven centuries during the Middle Ages. For example, Fatima and Salma are both Arabic in origin but we often think of them as Spanish names.

All About the Baby Name – Yamilet

Personality

OF THE GIRL NAME YAMILET

The number Four personality is marked by stability and discipline. This is the personality that follows the rules and is conservative by nature.  They have an earth-bound energy that prefers to build things methodically on top of firm foundations; they don't cut corners. Fours take their time and don't like to be hurried. But the outcome of their endeavors is likely to result in some strong and useful structure, which makes them great engineers and inventors. Fours are anything but frivolous or controversial. This is a trustworthy, straight-forward personality that embodies dedication and organization. They are the backbone and anchor in their relationships, careers and communities. They are tidy, punctual, and full of integrity. Hard-work comes naturally to a Four and they are immensely reliable. This is the personality you can always count on.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME YAMILET

Both Yamilet and Yamileth are new to the American naming scene (and used almost exclusively among Hispanic-Americans). Yamilet first surfaced on the charts in 2000, disappeared the following year, and then returned again in 2006 (Yamileth followed in 2010). Most people are completely unaware of this name because it’s very rare and hardly ever used. We’re not sure what prompted the conversion of Yamila to Yamilet(h), but creating new names from existing names is a common American naming practice (at least in some circles). Perhaps parents are trying to make an already “beautiful” name a little more beautiful.
