Joki Name Meaning
Finnish: topographic name from joki ‘river’. During the name conversion movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries, Joki was adopted as a replacement by Finns with Swedish surnames, especially those containing Swedish ström ‘river’. In some cases it may have been adopted as a topographic name by someone who lived by a river.
