I work at an elementary school and we just had a new little girl start, her name is Yesenia. What do you think of it? Here's what behind the name says...

YESENIA
Gender: Feminine
Usage: Spanish (Latin American)
From Jessenia, the genus name of a type of tree found in South America. This name was first used by Yolanda Vargas in the Telenovela 'Yesenia' (1970).

BNW says...
Origin: Arabic
Meaning: Flora

It's pronounced like Yeh-sen-e-uh.

I don't mind how it sounds, but really dislike the way it looks.

It seems a little bit downmarket, probably because of the telenovela. I think that's what made it popular.

Its pretty common around here, but in TX of course we have a high latin american and mexican/mexican american population

We slur our words together often and Ye-sin-ee-uh comes out as -Yuh-sin-yuh instead and I dont like that pronunciation of it. I'd ask people around you to say it before you use it in case you run the risk of pronunciations you dont like
