An everlasting expression of love, Aiko is most commonly recognized as a gender neutral Japanese name. Aiko’s meaning can transform depending on the kanji used, but most parents love the meanings “love” or “fortunate” with “child” for their sweet one. Aiko also has Germanic roots as a masculine title derived from the elements agi- meaning “awe,” “terror,” and “fear,” and agiō, meaning “edge,” “sharpness (of a weapon),” or “sword.” Blending such powerful connotations inspires Aiko’s possible meaning of “awesome sword”—how does that sound for your badass little munchkin? A name that celebrates the angel and the rebel, Aiko is a worldly appellation for the tot who's not afraid to be themselves.
