Hawaiian or Norse
"leeward or woman, wife"

Kona Origin and Meaning

The name Kona is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "leeward or woman, wife".
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. It's a unisex name in Hawaii, with an appealing simple, strong sound.

In Old Norse kona means "woman" or "wife". It has now fallen out of use as a name in the Nordic countries, but was particularly popular in southern Greenland.
