Personal name Hieike?

How is this name pronounced? I saw it on this video at 1:28:

Is it Hi-eik-e? Hie-i-ke? Or even more like Hjei-ke?

Odd, I've never seen that name before. "Heike" is fairly common here (among the Germans and German descendants), but I've never seen "Hieike" before. It may have been a misspelling.

It looks indeed weird. I think it could be also "Hieke" which can be found in the Netherlands as a female first name. I've seen a site where it is listed under the Frisian girl names. In the end it might be a misspelling.

Hmmm. You're right. A misspelling. It's "Heike" on her facebook page (note that it says "Paarl Gimnasium", so I think I've found the same girl):
