I honestly just think about Akagami no Shirayukihime, or Snow White with the Red Hair when I see the name Kiki.

My first name is Kyriaki as a family name. In my childhood, my parents use to call me Korina instead.
In Greece, most nick names for Kyriaki are Kiki and Koula but they sound like old fashioned nick names. Since I have moved to England, people used to call me Kiki, Carrie or Kyra, so I picked the Greek old fashion one Kiki. I have to say, it doesn't sound so bad to my ears anymore :)

It can be used as diminutive of Evridiki and Aliki (Greek form of Alice, written Αλικη). [noted -ed]

I call my cat Kiki, who is officially named Cosmo Kramer (yes, Seinfeld reference.) The only reason he is called Kiki is because I got drunk one night after we first got him and I was searching for him somewhere in the house drunkenly yelling "here Kiki! Where is Kiki!" It just sorta stuck. Even my 13 year old basset hound calls his brother "Kiki".

In the language Tagalog, Philippines, it means vagina. I learned this from my Filipino friend when I lived in San Francisco many years ago. I also checked several Websites. I've called my son Kiki since he was a baby. It's a pet name for him, not used around people outside our family. This was true even before I learned the Tagalog meaning. :)

This is cute. If it's your full name, that's cool-- Kiki stands out and has some character to it, unlike some other names. I don't tend to think names sound "trashy"--the person makes the name.

My name is Kiki, and I quite disagree with some of the people who think it's a bad name. I have been very successful in life and my name has never interfered with anything. I really like my name (and no I'm not someone who couldn't keep my legs together), it's a great conversation starter. I'm not saying everyone has to like the name, I just think some people should have a bit more respect instead of making fun of it.

Look guys... My name is Kiki and I've lived with it my whole life. If you can't take someone seriously just because of their name you clearly wouldn't be able to respect other cultures. It's disheartening to think that someone would treat me as a slut just because my name doesn't "sound serious". :(

This could be a hilarious nickname of the name Kieran. XD

I feel sorry for the poor little girls in the Netherlands who are given this as a legal name.

I'm sorry, but Kiki is such a trashy, horrible name. As a nickname, it can be cute for the first 6 years, but on anyone older than about 12 it makes me think of a ditz who well... let's just say, can't keep their legs together.

Plus it was used on the tv show Dollhouse as the name of an airheaded college girl sleeping with her professor, played by Eliza Dushku and Enver Gjokaj (his portrayal of Kiki is about the only redeeming part of this name; it's hilarious. And no, 'his' wasn't a typo. It makes sense in context.)

Kiki means "crisis" in Japanese (Kiki in Kiki's Delivery Service writes her name with other characters, though, it's not the same word).

I'm half Samoan and my Samoan family calls me this. It means kick in Samoan but they use it as my name. It's not my real name but my mum just calls me this. My dad however is European and calls me by my proper name Didi, which comes from the Dutch side of my family. Yeah I don't really like Kiki. I can only think of Kiki Palmer :/ Yeah my mum used to call me Didi like everyone else. But when she's mad at me (which is very often now haha) she yells KIKI. And it's said like Gee-ki. All my cousins call me Kiki. Ugh.

I love this as a nickname for names such as Kirsten, Christine and Katherine.

I know a lady named Vasiliki who is called Kiki. She is Greek-American and accents the nickname on the first syllable. I don't know if this nickname would be used for this name in Greece.

Haha. I watched Kiki's Delivery Service with a friend of mine a while ago, and we always made fun of it, so now if I ever met anyone with that name, I wouldn't be able to talk to them without cracking up.

This name is used in Greece as a diminutive of Kyriaki or, less commonly, Aggeliki/Angeliki. Pronounced kee-KEE, it 'used to be quite common, when Greek women were using nicknames and diminutives. Today it is not that much in use.' [noted -ed]

I think it's more a name of a parrot or a lovebird.

I've always loved the name Kiki, but I've never met anyone who has it. I think it's really cute, and if I ever get a female cat or dog then I'll name them that. :)
Of course, I might be biased since I'm a huge Miyazaki fan (director of Kiki's Delivery Service, a favorite childhood movie of mine), but anyway. Yeah. Love this name.

The anime movie Kiki's Delivery Service, in Spanish they call her Nicky, check imdb and also go to imdbpro for the new upcoming movie.

Bad name, it is only good for like the first 18 years then it becomes bad, just like most of the popular names that were wildly invented. Parents should go to the older names because those are the ones you can have from start to finish.

I always heard this name as a nickname for Kiara. And, by the way, I can see a Grandma Kiki. She'd be one of those fun grannies who makes lots of fudge and swing dances on Thursdays.

The name is very pretty. I live in Croatia and Kiki is used in Croatia as a nickname for Kristijan (Christian) so there is a lot of Kikis in Croatia (my dad too, but his name is Dragan). In Croatia the nickname for Kristijan is not Chris or Cris.

I have more than one category to talk about. First of all, people in Japan use the name Kiki. Second of all, This name can be a nickname for Akiko.

Sorry if this is your name but IT'S HILARIOUS!. It sounds retarded as an actual person's name though. More of a pet's name, or a bug's name.

Bah, I hope no one has named their daughter this. The name is incredibly infantile, and even worse than Coco.

Kiki is the Tagalog slang word for female genitalia. Just use a different name if you ever take your child to the Philippines.

Kiki Strike is a character in the book "Kiki Strike" (not main but a VERY important character). I like this name a lot thanks to that book.

This name is so cute! It also seems to me that it should be a twin name with Koko, though I bet if you named your children that they'd kill you.

My name is Ciara, and Kiki has been my petname for the whole of my life! When I looked up my name Ciara (keer-ah) KiKi was associated as being the common nickname. It's so cute and simple don't you think?
