Meaning:To protect; Gentle; Beautiful, precious
Keeva is a feminine American name that stems from the Irish Caoimhe—pronounced kwee-vah—and means “gentle, beautiful, precious.” Keeva may also be a form of the Hebrew Akiva, a gender-neutral name meaning “to protect.” Keeva has a light and airy appeal and will remain a youthful appellation as baby grows. The original spelling of Caoimhe has always been a trendy and beloved name in Ireland, with the recent Americanized Keeva preferred by US parents. If you wish to honor your Irish heritage but want an easier-to-spell name than the Gaelic Caoimhe, Keeva is a winning choice.
