Ike was the nickname of American President Dwight David Eisenhower; his campaign slogan was "I Like Ike." Ironically, his mother chose his birthname so he would not have a nickname. ;>)

I love this as a nickname for Isaac, which is one of my favorite names. Ike was what my grandpa always went by, and he was an incredible man. Though I don't know how he became known as Ike, because it is nowhere close to his given name.

The name IKE appears to have a very diverse origin. Amongst The IBO tribe of Eastern Nigeria (in West Africa), the name IKE (meaning MIGHT or POWER) serves similar purpose as the name Mac (or Mc) amongst the Irish (Mac Cormack, McNulty, MacDonald, MacAulay etc). IKE (IKEchukwu, IKEnna, IKEm, IKEchi, IKEmefula etc). Most people (exclusively male) who bear these names are usually called IKE and it is pronounced as – [EKAY].
Over the years however, the popularisation of the American version of the name has slightly influenced the way it is pronounced in Nigeria. Nevertheless, most IKE of IBO decent will accept either pronunciation American pronunciation IYCKE or the native pronunciation EKAY.
