Be careful with this name. I've heard this name used as an insult. Calling someone a 'Love Child' isn't exactly polite. If you choose this name for your daughter, make sure you use 'Child of Love' when giving definitions.

This name, though it literaly means 'love child', is meant to mean 'child who will be loved'.

Aiko does not mean 'child who will be loved'. It simply means 'love child' because of the kanjis used in the name.

The pronunciation is "Eye-Koh". Although the true meaning of the name is "love child" I thought I might let you know some the the other things it means:
-Iced Coffee (Not exactly sure about this one)
-A favour
-A tie (of a game)

My dog's name is Aiko and she is, indeed, a very loved "child!"

We named her Aiko as a wordplay on the old Cajun song Iko Iko and the Japanese name for girls. We get a lot of people who actually catch the song and start singing it!

Actually, the meaning is not "love child" as in the slang term for a child born out of wedlock but as in "beloved child."

Aiko is also a male given name in Scandinavia and especially northern Germany. It is a variation of the name Ekke or Eike.

It's pronounced ah-ee-ko, a-i-ko.

I would pronounce it 'Eye-ko', but other people might pronounce it 'Eye-ee-ko'. Either way, I don't think it matters and it is my favourite Japanese name.

I went to school with a girl called Masami who very recently had a daughter called Aiko. They had some difficulty choosing what to name their daughter and finally decided on Aiko, with the kanji for 'good-looking, quiet' and 'daughter, girl' [like in this link - I don't know if the link will show up or if it will even work, but it's worth a go.] As far as I know, it's an uncommon kanji choice and I can't say I like it - it's pretty and unusual, but the meaning just seems a bit old fashioned, to me.

The name Aiiko was given to me by my father who was in the Navy in Japan. He found the name in a baby name book and it was spelled Aiiko pronounced Ah/ee/co. It means "Child of Love. Diana Ross made a song called Love Child, it was about an unwanted child. I don't find my name spelled with two I's anywhere. I've been told that it is an African name as well. I don't think it is.

This is a very pretty name. If I ever have a little girl I might name her this. "Love child" is a great meaning for a name for a girl.

At first I thought this name meant "love child", but I did a little more research and found out it means "beloved child". What a beautiful meaning!

1) Aiko or Ayko is also a traditional male given name in Scandinavia and especially northern Germany. In Germany it is considered one of the old "gentry names". It is a variation of the name Ekke or Eike. Ekke translates to "blade".[2] As a male given name in West Nile, Aiko is a shorter variation of the name Ayiko.

2) Aiko (あいこ, アイコ?) is a female Japanese given name. The meaning varies depending on the kanji used to write it. Several written forms include:

愛子 — Love and child, child of love
藍子 — Indigo and child, tinctoria child. Its meaning, "child who is superior to parents", on Japanese proverb, 'Blue dye is made from tinctoria'.
愛幸 — Love fortune.
葵子 — Hollyhock and child, the same kanji can be used to write Riko and Kiko as well as the more similar Aoko, Aoiko, and Ako.
Aiko originates from the root Ayiko which means "happiness" in Lugbara.

Project Aiko is a gynoid created by Canadian inventor Le Trung. Aiko was created as a means to help the elderly, essentially as a functional, helpful nurse. Aiko can speak fluent English and Japanese, and is very mobile [except for her legs, which is a resolution of Trung provided he can garner a sponsor and pay off the high debt].
