Traditional Hawaiian Naming Practices

“In the early days of Hawai‘i, personal possessions were few, but highly valued. Poi pounders, woven mats, a man’s malo or loin cloth, the stone adze of a canoe maker, the bone hooks of a fisherman, the spear of a warrior – all these were prized. But even more precious was each man’s most personal possession, his name.” (Source:  Nänä I Ke Kumu Volume I, p. 94)

inoa, naming and self-concept

“A Hawaiian name might tell the place and conditions of birth, reveal family lineage, an ancestor’s occupation and particular mana. Inoa might also define social distinctions. . .

Whatever the meaning behind the inoa. . .the name itself had mana; the name itself might bear a kapu. Both could play a part in shaping the character, personality – even the fate and fortunes – of the bearer!” (Source:  Nänä I Ke KumuVolume II, p. 290)

Examples of Ali‘i Names:

“Pauahi (Bernice Pauahi’s aunt, the sister of her mother Konia) – When Aunt Pauahi was just a baby, she was rescued from a fire. Because of that incident, she was given the name Pauahi. In Hawaiian, pua means ‘finish’ and ahi means ‘fire.’ Pauahi means ‘destroyed by fire, burned; to put out a fire.”‘ (Source:  Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop by Julie Stewart Williams, p.3)

“Lili‘u Kamaka‘eha (Bernice Pauahi’s hänai sister) – Lili‘uokaokalani was born on September 2, 1838, to the High Chief Caesar Kapa‘akea and High Chiefess Keohokälole. She was named Lili‘u (Smarting) Kamaka‘eha (The Sore Eye). It may seem as if the baby had an eye problem when she was born but this was not so. The high Chiefess Kïna‘u, who gave Lili‘u her name, was the one with the sore eye. Besides Lili‘u Kamaka‘eha, her Christian name was Lydia, a name given her at her baptism. It was not until years later that she was called Lili‘uokalani.” (Source:  Lili‘uokalani by Ruby Hawegawa Lowe, p. 3)

“Kaleleonälani – the Flight of the Heavenly Chiefs – name given to Queen Emma after the death of her husband, King Alexander Liholiho Kamehameha IV.” (Source:  Emma, Hawai‘i’s Remarkable Queen by George S. Kanahele)

  1. My Hawaiian name is Maikalimanuiheolapono, which means from Limanui comes a righteous life. Limanui refers to God (Limanui – great/large hands), is my Hawaiian ancestors’ last name “Limanui”, and also my Sāmoan grandpa was Tagii”Lima”. Timoteo is Sāmoan and the same as Hawaiian Kimokeo, which means Timothy. Timothy means to honor God.

  2. The song “I Want You” By Christina Brown (New Hope) Is so fun and upbeat. The meaning of it is very powerful and energetic.
