It is also said to mean "pure." Kiyoko is a rather popular name, used in such movies as "Tokyo Godfathers" and "Akira."

If you separate the "kiyo" into separate kanji, you can make some other choices as well:
"ki":
-honour/worship/respect
-joy
-writings
-turtle

"yo":
-generation
-world

"ko":
-child

Using "joy" and "world" together with "child" would be a fun name to give a baby born near Christmas ("Joy to the World The Lord (Christ child) is come..."). Some Japanese celebrate Christmas and a few even know what it's about.

Another variation on the name is Kiyomi.

Kiyoko is a very beautiful name. I'm using it in one of my Inuyasha fictions!

I have heard of two pronunciations of this name. Key-yo-ko and kie-yo-ko.

I've also seen it spelled Kyoko meaning "mirror." I could be wrong, though. A pretty name for a baby girl.

This name has a rather weird meaning in my opinion.

I think this is a rather cute name, sounds like a good name for a kitty. I like how it has the name Yoko in it (I like that name).

My middle name is Kayoko. The pronunciation being KAI-OH-KO. The name Kayoko wasn't on this website. It was my grandmother's first name, and when I think of the name I think of beauty.
