Yuri

Yuri is a Russian, Ukrainian, and Belarusian male name, the Slavic form of George meaning “farmer, earthworker” made up of Ancient Greek elements ge (earth) which seems to derive from an unknown origin, likely pre-Greek in origin; and ergon (work), which ultimately desires from a PIE root word. Interestingly enough, I’ve found that Yuri is a somewhat popular male name in Brazil which I’m assuming comes from the Slavic name.

Yuri is also a Japanese female name. It means “lily” written with the kanji 百合 but has other meanings depending on the kanji used:

yu 

  • “cause, reason”

  • 有 “exist; have; possess”
  • “divine help”

ri

  • 梨 “pear”
  • “village”
  • “reason, logic”
  • “profit, benefit”
  • 莉 “jasmine”

There are other meanings depending on the kanji used. Written in hiragana it’s ゆり and in katakana it’s ユリ.

Yuri is also a Korean female name (also spelled Yu-ri and Yoo-ri) written in hangul as 유리 and has different meanings depending on the hanja used such as: 

유 (yu)

  • () “to approve”

  • (宥) “forgive”
  • (釉) “glaze”

리 (ri)

  • (利) “benefit, advantage”
