Hawaiian Baby Names

Hawaiian names are becoming more widely-used in the US in recent years, especially for girls. As the world gets smaller, parents in the mainland US and beyond become more familiar with Hawaiian names. Two important influences: the presidency of Barack Obama, who was born and raised in Hawaii and whose oldest daughter Malia bore a Hawaiian name, and the Disney animated film Moana. If you're looking for a Hawaiian name for your baby, consider these choices for both girls and boys.
