One of my best friends is named Keiko. I absolutely love her name, and I always think it sounds like a smart playful person. Many people do pronnounce it: "KEE-ko" when it is actually "KAY-ko" but otherwise, I don't think anyone ever said she didn't like her name. I'm still pretty young, but I will definitely consider Keiko as my baby's name when I grow up!
