Keke Origin and Meaning

The name Keke is girl's name meaning "double happiness; strength of a spear; pure".
Keke is a multicultural double-punch nickname, notably borne by actress Keke Palmer. Palmer was born Lauren Keyana, yet her nickname does not derive from her middle name — her older sister had an imaginary friend named Keke.

In the US, Keke is often used as a variation of Kiki or the Hawaiian version of Kate. In Finland, Keke — pronounced KAY-kay — is a nickname for Gertrud.
