I have a friend named Akiko and in her case it means "expressive child" because of the kanji chosen for it.

I've noticed how English speakers always seem to pronounce it ah-KEE-ko which is wrong. It's pronounced AH-kee-ko. My Japanese friend is name Akiko (pronounced AH-kee-ko). Even though she has told everybody how it's pronounced correctly English speakers still say ah-KEE-ko all the time.
