Little Funke is bound to spark joy in your life. This masculine name of German origin comes from the Proto-Germanic funkô, meaning “metalsmith,” “smith,” “spark,” or “touchwood.” It could also be a short form of the feminine African name Olufunke, meaning “God gives great care” or “given by God to be loved” in Yorùbá. The body of this name, Olú, refers to one of the manifestations of the Supreme God of the Yorùbá deities. As Olú, or Olúrún, owns the heavens and is often linked to the sun’s life force energy, you won’t be able to help but love the positivity and vitality Funke radiates.
