Kona Origin and Meaning

The name Kona is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "leeward".
Kona is strongly associated with the Kona coffee of Hawaii. The Hawaiian word kona means "leeward" or "dry side of the island," and Kona districts are where Kona coffee is grown.

In the age of strong A-ending boy names like Noah, Judah, Asa and Koa, this multicultural name feels cool and fresh right now. As well as its directional Hawaiian meaning, Kona is also used in Fiji as a variant of the Irish name Connor, now a proper Fijian name in its own right.
