Yoko Ono is the widow of Beatle John Lennon.

I've read that this name could also mean "good girl".
-- PVega  5/31/2005
Can also mean "leaf child" or "big sea child".

Used excessively in generations gone by, not as common in under 20 crowd (though still used). I've known lots of Yokos. It's almost as popular as Keiko, probably.

It is also the name of the legendary fox-demon bandit Yoko Kurama from an anime/manga: Yu Yu Hakusho.

Depending on the Kanji, or Japanese characters, used, the name Yoko can also mean "Chrysanthemum Child" or, "Ocean Child" (the latter being the case for the famous Yoko Ono). [noted -ed]

Yoko Kanno, famous music producer/artist for many various animes.

In Case Closed (Detective Conan), there is a pop idol named Yoko Okino.

That is interesting, because John Lennon used the words "ocean child" in the song Julia, about his mother. I wonder if the inspiration came from Yoko.

John Lennon did use the phrase "ocean child" in reference to Yoko in Julia. The song is as much about Yoko as it is about Julia.

A main character in Marathon's Team Galaxy TV series. 15-year-old Yoko aspires to be a pop idol althought she cannot carry out a tune.
-- stickyrice  11/12/2007
It's actually a nice name in my opinion, sweet. I would never name my child that though,
1) I am not Japanese
2) It's not my kind of name
3) It's one of the characters in "The Grudge" and she died a scary death.

I don't like this name. The Grudge association is horrible, and even worse is that of Yoko Ono, who is rather annoying in my opinion.

Who would want to name their kid after that horrible woman Yoko Ono, who used her hypnotic powers to entice poor, unsuspecting John Lennon into her filthy claws? That in and of itself is enough to strike this one off my baby naming list. Plus, this is the sound my cat makes when it is throwing up a hairball.

"Yoko, Yoko, Yoko!"
"Uh-oh, Felix just coughed up a furball! someone ought to clean that up!"

Lastly, it sounds too much like Yolk, which reminds me of that icky yellow stuff that is a potential chicken. And you eat it for breakfast.
-- lillyanna  12/19/2009
That is a very mean thing to say. Some people have the name Yoko, and I bet no one's naming their kid that because of Yoko Ono. There have been many wonderful people named Yoko, and I think you should try to ignore the "bad" people who have this name and think of the good. I personally like this name, and I'm not Japanese. Just felt like I had to stand up for all the Yokos out there.

First off that no way to talk about Yoko because John was a grown man and if he wasn't smart enough to stand up to himself then he wasn't worth it. I thinks it a shame that this smart intellectual woman is forever branded because of him and it was obvious that John was always a hippy. Yoko was the only person that helped him accomplished that goal and fight for his dreams, so stop talking about her like that. It could happen to anybody.

I really like this name because, before I think of Yoko Ono, I think of Yoko Kanno, who is a wonderful Japanese composer, and my personal idol in terms of music.
-- MtotheK  3/18/2010
There's the awesome character Yoko Littner from the anime series Gurren Lagann. She is the lead female character and a great fighter, and a reason why I began to like this name a bit more. Also as noted above, there's the Japanese composer Yoko Kanno, who has created some truly spectacular soundtracks, though her best-known is probably her music for the anime Cowboy Bebop.

Yoko is a character in the cartoon Timothy Goes to School.
