This boy’s name is based in Judaism, and is often said to mean “light.” Kouki is a great name which can also carry a host of other meanings, depending on how one chooses to write the Kanji for it. Kouki can mean “sacred,” “skillful,” “fortunate joy,” or even, interestingly, “wide tree.” And there are many more! However you choose to define–and write–the name, there’s no denying that Kouki is a unique name that is given very infrequently, both in America and abroad. But it’s a strong name with positive significance, so perhaps someday it’ll gain in popularity around the world.
