Sounds fun! Here's some that came to mind, I'll post more later if I can think of something.

Strangely, Miku seems to be a very rare male name in Finland.

Megurine Luka
Luka (song) by Suzanne Vega

Kaito
Magic Kaito (manga)

Meiko
A lake in Kirkkonummi, Finland
Map

UNI
A bit far-fetched but "Uni" means "dream" in Finnish.

LUMi
"Lumi" means "snow" in Finnish.

Maika
Sakuranomiya Maika, character in anime Blend-S.

* Here's a website that lists (with photos!) places and businesses that share their name with a Vocaloid

Some portuguese words! The sounds are the same even if written differently.

Prima - female word for "cousin"
:miku_chickadee: - Mico is a kind of small monkey (also used in slang; ele pagou um mico = he paid a mico = he embarrassed himself)
:rin_lili: - Rim means "kidney"
:lapis_lili: - Lápis means "pencil"
:piko_lili: - Pico means "peak"
:yuki_lili: - Cai is a conjugation of the verb cair, which is "to fall" (ele cai fácil = he falls easily)

(Not a character but, Teto and Kaito's ship as "KaiTeto" sounds exactly like "cai teto", which would be like "fall, ceiling".)

:prima_lili:Prima is actually a german word! :D It means well, great, fine or nice.
:daina_lili:DAINA is a dinosaur and everyone knows it.
:dex_lili:DEX is also pretty close to Tyrannosaurus Rex. I don't think that's coincidence.
:gackpo_lili:Gackpo could be split off to "gack" and "Po". "Gack" is pretty much a german onomatopoeia of what chicken say and "Po" is a german word for "ass" or "booty". Well...
:gumi_lili:GUMI is pretty close to "Gummi" which means rubber in german. Or eraser. Or condome.
:bigal_lili:The first times I've read Big Al as Big Ai and guys, come on, that's adorable.
:piko_lili:Piko... Pico... well. :D
:ia_lili:Some people pronounce "IA" like "eeh - ah" which would be the german onomatopoeia of what donkeys say.
:mayu_lili:Mayu could be mayonnaise.
:avanna_lili:AVANNA oh na na... half of my heart is in AVANNA oh na na...
:merli_lili:Merlin.
