Other Origin(s):Hebrew
Meaning:Pure; Life
Kaija is a feminine name whose meaning resembles more than good intentions. As a Finnish variation of the Greek Katherine, Kaija means "pure," evoking innocence and virtuous ideals. Already a charming appellation for a newborn, Kaija's ties to the Hebrew name Chava, which means "life," makes it all the more fitting.
