Meaning:Beloved
Suki is a sweet girl’s name of Japanese origin, meaning “beloved,” that delights in your devotion for baby. This likeable little name is taken from the Japanese word suki, which, when used in conversation, can be used to express a certain fondness for something. And no matter what that something might be—maybe your favorite place, a food that pleases your palate, or a person you admire—suki is your go-to term. Add a little dai to your suki to make daisuki, which means “love,” and baby Suki is sure to feel adored! Suki may also be a possible derivative or nickname of the likes of Susanna or Susan, too.
