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.

I named my daughter Zoe because my husband and I didn't agree, because we are of different nationalities, so we decided on a name to go with their status as inter-racial baby, plus the meaning is very cute and powerful "LIVE"

I named my son Keanu' 5 years ago, because his dad and I liked it. We had a few names on our list and we both circled the same name. We did not name our child Keanu after the actor, we could care less. Therefore, some of you have no validity in your comments of ignorance. Furthermore, it doesn't sound like a girl's name, and it should not "only be used by Hawaiian folks". You people appear a bit narrow minded. Try and expand your thoughts and horizons, after all, you received your name from someone, we all did. If you choose to think Keanu Reeves is the originator then so be it, but get a clue, he is not the 1st Keanu in the world, you apparently just never heard the name until you started watching TV. That in itself is tragic sadness. Now I feel better, Thanks to your ignorance. (Cool Breezes Mom).
