English ~ Hawaiianized Names

Hawaiian Names

Just like Mahalo and Aloha, Hawaiian names are inspired by the island’s picturesque landscape, vibrant culture and ancestry connection to the universe, land and sea. Many Hawaiian names have very specific meaning based on ancestral visions, hieroglyphics symbols and celebratory events. The names on this list have been Hawaiianized to the closest English translation. Hawaiian names are very popular for newly born baby’s names or just to know if your name has a Hawaiian link.
