What does her name mean?

Hi,

I have a 2 year old daughter named Ineke.  My husband and I saw a girl on the news one night when I was pregnant and her name was Ineke.  We loved the name and stole it!!  Our problem is that we have no idea what it means or its origins.  We think it may be Danish?  We have been searching for over 2 years now for any information.  Can anyone out there help us?  Please?

Cheers,
Hayley

My sister in-law's name is Ineke and she is dutch.  She was told that it is a variation of the name Annika and means grace or favor.

Ineke is a boys name in Dutch and a girls name in German.  No idea on the meaning - but very pretty name.

Use the orginal name "Ineke" and do not modtify a single letter in this name because it will be inauspicious to use, with this name. contact the danish embassy in washington dc., look up their website on the web and sent them a letter asking is it a danish name or what,

Wow!! Japanese! I like the meaning too. Her middle name is Sky, so she's Ineke Sky. Our son is Caden, which means friend, so I'm happy to have a friend and a nurturer in the family - how peaceful!!
