I've met several Dutch women with the name Heike, so it might be interesting to change it to unisex.
I am from South Africa and my name is also Heike, everyone calls me Hay-ke (like it is spelled in Afrikaans) but my German grandparents call me High-ke.
There was a German woman that used to live next door to us with this name, and when we were children we always used to laugh about it because it brings to mind a hiker. But she was a nice woman. :)
Listen to the German pronunciation of Heike here:
One of my daughter's pre-school teachers is Heike and she pronounces is "High-key".
Dutch pronunciation is HIE-kuh. [noted -ed]
This is a neat German name, pronounced "Hi-kah". [noted -ed]
