Origin: Irish

Meaning: it could be a variant spelling of Keeva, the Anglicized form of Gaelic feminine name Caoimhe meaning "beautiful, gentle, kind".

I've also seen it listed as being a variant of Akiva, a Hebrew masculine name, ultimately from Yaakov, the Hebrew form of Jacob meaning "holder of the heel" or "supplanter", although I don't know how accurate that is.
