Etymology of the name JOAKIM.
Meaning of the baby name JOAKIM.

  

JOAKIM.  Biblical.  LXX. Ἰωακείμ; Joacim.  A contracted form of biblical Jehoiakim (q.v.), meaning "the Lord will judge" or "(whom) Jehovah has set up."  Usage: Germany, Russia (Иоаким).

... Alcimus, whose Hebrew name was, according to Ruffinus (ap. Selden), Joachim, i.e. Joakim or Jehoiakim, of which Eliakim (= Alkimus) is a natural variant (cp. Judith iv. 6, Joakim, Greek = Eliakim, Syriac and Vulg.), and who was made high-priest by Antiochus Eupator on Menelaus being put to death by him, was the first who was of a different family; one, says Josephus, that "was indeed of the stock of Aaron, but not of this (Jehozadak's) family." (A Dictionary of the Bible, Smith, v.1, 1893)
