A traditional Hawaiian name has a specific meaning behind it and is given to a child when they are born by a family elder. The child is typically named after something that came to a family elder in a dream, by distinguishing characteristics the child displays when born, or characteristics the family would like the child to display. For example the womans name Lani means Heavenly.
The Hawaiian translations we provide are
phonetic and have no intentional literal meanings.
The phonetic translations are done based on the sounds the name makes when said and the Hawaiian alphabet and word structure. Because there are only 13 letters in the Hawaiian language there are many names which sound similar and have the same phonetic translation.
