235 Hawaiian Baby Names With Meanings

Picturesque landscapes, vibrant flowers, and white sand beaches, Hawaiians have an eternal connection with the land, sea, and universe, which can be seen in their baby names as well. The rhythmic sounds of the Hawaiian baby names evoke exotic images of nature while staying true to their culture.

In earlier times, the babies were named by Kupuna, the eldest member of the family, right at the time of birth. The name could have appeared in the form of a sign in a dream or vision. Hawaiians would also pick ancestral names handed down from generation to generation, and this tradition is still somewhat prevalent.

Today, the Hawaiian baby names mostly refer to nature or have positive meanings. Some parents even pick trendy American first names for their children. But for the middle spot, they stick to a traditional Hawaiian name.

Below is MomJunction's wide selection of Hawaiian baby names, along with their meanings. We’ve also added the name in alphabetical order for better navigation.
