Comments for the name Aiko


Comments for AIKO:

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!
