50 Hawaiian Boy Names

50 Hawaiian Boy Names

When it comes to Hawaii, there’s no shortage of nature to draw inspiration from, which is why many Hawaiian names are tied to Mother Earth’s offerings. Whether you’re Hawaiin or not, you may be considering giving your baby boy a Hawaiian name, and we’re not surprised at all. After all, nature-inspired names hold weight all over the world. However, not all Hawaiian names are tied to the Earth, like the names Akamai, Anakoni, and Ikaika, for example.

Akamai means “smart or clever” in Hawaiian, whereas Anakoni means “priceless one” and is the Hawaiian version of the name Anthony. The name Ikaika, on the other hand, means “strong,” making it the perfect name for a newborn boy who has a lot of fight in them.

If you’re interested in giving your son a nature-inspired Hawaiian name, there are few as popular as the name Kai, which means “sea.” But if you’d prefer to give your son a longer first name, you can combine Kai with the word “holo,” which means “running.” Kaiholo is a beautiful and masculine name that means “running water.”

Although Hawaii is reputed for its beaches, it’s also well-known for its steady winds and breathtaking mountain peaks. With this in mind, many Hawaiian natives choose to name their sons Makani, which means “wind,” or Aalona, which means “high mountains.”
