User comments for Aiko (Meaning / History Only)

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.

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

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.

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.

Regarding the name Aiko. I was born and raised in Japan. Very traditional family. The name Aiko is taboo. It means a child born out of wedlock and it's a shame to the family. Be careful when naming your child and do not listen to these so called modern prophets who claim they know the meaning of the name! Also do not believe every website on baby names.
