Leck Says:


Inoa only refers to a name chant within the context of a name chant. Such as in the common line, "He inoa no (insert name here)"indicating at the end of Hawaiian chants who that chant was written for. By itself, inoa does not mean name chant. It basically means "name". You will not find anyone in Hawai'i with the name "inoa". You will find "Kainoa" or "Nainoa", but it is usually part of a longer name with meaning.
