"Y" abuse is the liberal substitution of the letter "y" for other more traditional vowels, typically "e" "a" and "i", in someones first (or given) name.

This phenomenon is part of a larger trend today in which people are desperately trying to out-do each other in giving their newborn child the most ridiculous sounding or wildly irrational spelling of a first name possible, as if there some unspoken competition going on.
Examples of "Y" abuse would include the following bastardizations of traditional names...Trystyn, Syvannah, Nycole, Alyxandra, Morgyn, Austyn, or Veronyca.
