Meaning & History

From Sino-Korean (suk) meaning "good, pure, virtuous, charming" and (ja) meaning "child". Other hanja characters can form this name as well. Korean feminine names ending with the character (a fashionable name suffix in Japan, read as -ko in Japanese) declined in popularity after 1945 when Korea was liberated from Japanese rule.
