What do you prefer Kiva or Kivi?

Never seen the name before. Are they real names?
For a boy or girl? If I don't know what sex it's for I don't have much of an opinion.
Reminds me of Kiwi actually.

Are they versions of the Irish name, Caoimhe (Kweeva, sometimes anglicised to Keeva or Keavey)?

What do you think of Keira (nn Keivie)as the above looks Irish-ish, but I too think of Kiwi...

Kivi is very close to kiwi.

I misread Kivi as Kiwi at first.

Ahh this makes me smile, the words mean 'Nice' (Kiva) and 'Stone'(Kivi) in Finnish. I prefer 'Kiva' fwiw.

Please use the spelling Caoimhe, it's a beautiful name.

ClaryBeanHorshAndMe Sat 01-Apr-17 15:10:23

Btw, Kiva and Kivi are both actual names.

Not "just" versions of Caoimhe...

Maudinmaud - kiva is a Hebrew name, not a misspelling of an Irish name.

Maudlinmaud Sat 01-Apr-17 15:15:07

I didn't realise that. Thanks.

I like Kiva. I think it's a lovely name.

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Sat 01-Apr-17 15:25:18

I like Akiva too actually.

Sounds like my favourite drink

Kiva is also the name of a charity.

How about Kizzy !

I think Kiva with Kivi as a nickname is lovely.

No, I'd really prefer a Vatermelon instead.
