Hi Gabor,
It's in Hebrew: "Yeffe" means beautifull, nice.  "Nefesh" means soul.  So Yeffe nefesh means "nice, beautifull soul".  Practically it has 2 different (opposing) meanings:
1.  A person who really has a nice soul
     (cares to everything).
2.  A person that doesn't really mean it, but
     say it to "look nice" and say things that
     people like to hear.... Hipocrates.....
Best regards,

Love is the battery of life....
