45+ Unique & Meaningful Hawaiian Girl Names

Hawaiian Baby Girl Names for your list!

Choosing the name of your baby is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a parent. And while that decision may be difficult, it’s an opportunity to give your child a unique identity for years to come.

Hawaii has some great names from its history- Hawaiian princesses, queens and warriors. But there are also plenty of original or traditional names that just scream “Hawaiian” without being too clichéd or overused. Here are 45 you might fall in love with:

Ailana

It is a name variation of Ailani that means ‘high chief.’ Ailana also means ‘island’ in the Hawaiian language. The name started to become popular in 2020, but it is still uncommon and easy to pronounce.

Ainakea

Anaka is an uncommon name given to babies, but it is a beautiful name that deserves your consideration. It partly means ‘white land; white earth.’ The real meaning of the name is too profound for words. Avoid trendy names and look for a unique, timeless name just like this one.

Apikaleah

It would be the prettiest name that a father can bestow to her daughter because it means, ‘a father’s delight.’ A daughter is one of the most beautiful things that can happen to a man. Naming your newborn Apikaleah would remind you everyday of how blessed you are to have a daughter.

Ele

If you prefer a short Hawaiian name for your baby, then Ele would be the perfect name to choose. The name is short, but it is versatile and stylish with a profound meaning. Ele means ‘the black, shining one’ that is perfect for your radiant child.

Elikapeka

The name means ‘God is my oath; the promise of God,’ and it is the Hawaiian counterpart of Elizabeth. With this name, you can choose Eli or Eka as a nickname.

Kaili

Kamelei

The name means ‘beloved child,’ and it would make an excellent name that will serve as a lifetime expression of your love for your daughter. This name reminder of parental love can increase the well-being and development of your growing child. It also comes in many name variations, such as Kamaleigh, Kamaleah, and Kamala.

Kehlani
