This name is Hawaiian for "mist over the mountains".

Keanu does NOT mean "mist over the mountains." Mist has many translations in Hawaiian; the primary one is "noe." Mountain is "mauna." Keanu is not derived from either of these words.

Dude! This name's, like, totally in the top 1,000 now. Like, what could cause that?

Keanu literally means "the coolness." Anu means "cool" or "coolness," and ke is a Hawaiian equivalent of "the."

I love this name and the meaning is just so nice.

I do love this name. I think Keanu Reeves has made it more popular, hence its place on the top 1000. It kinda sounds like "canoe", though.

No matter how macho the roles Keanu Reeves takes may be, I'll still always feel like this is a girl's name, in sound and meaning.

And if it is a Hawaiian phrase, the correct pronunciation would be KAY-ah-noo not, kee-AH-noo.

Being named after some actor because your mom used to think he was hot and being stuck with a foreign-sounding name that hasn't really caught on must suck.

I know it's a real name, but now it would look obvious that the parents using it are obsessed with Keanu Reeves. Celebrity-inspired names like this will totally date the bearer.

Well, it sounds pretty nice, but it should only be used by Hawaiians. Otherwise it just seems like the child was named after Keanu Reeves.
