Meaning & History

Derived from the Greek noun ἵππος (hippos) meaning "horse" combined with κοῶ (koo), which is a contracted form of the Greek verb κοέω (koeo) meaning "to know, to be aware" as well as "to mark, to perceive, to hear". As such, the meaning of this name must be something along the lines of "alert horse" or "perceptive horse".
