Keiko is said to be the most common given name for Japanese women. However, this is slightly complicated by the fact that there are 46 different ways to spell it in kanji, each carrying its own connotation.

Some famous Keikos include pianist Matsui Keiko, Keiko the Orca from Free Willy, and Keiko O'Brien from Deep Space Nine. Without further ado, here are the Many Keikos of the World, as Unicode entities:
