Meaning

Meiko is a Hebrew name commonly given to boys, meaning “humble one.” This name is often given to boys who show signs of modesty and humility, as these are considered important values in Jewish culture. The story goes that the great rabbi Hillel once said, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? And if not now, when?” This quote speaks to the importance of having compassion for oneself and others, which is why the name Meiko is so valued in Jewish culture. One famous bearer of this name was Meiko Takamine, a Japanese-American singer and songwriter known for her soulful voice and honest lyrics.
