Kivi Name Meaning
Finnish: topographic or ornamental name from kivi ‘stone’, ‘rock’. As a topographic name this dates back to the 16th century; it was also adopted during the name conversion movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries by Finns with Swedish surnames, especially those formed with Swedish sten ‘stone’, such as Stenvall, Stenroos, and Stenberg. Kivi is sometimes a shortened form of various other Finnish names formed with this word.
