Hawaiian names are as gorgeous as the islands themselves. The Hawaiian alphabet contains only 12 letters: five vowels (a, e, i, o, u) and seven consonants (h, k, l, m, n, p, w), but it’s amazing how many beautiful configurations those few letters can produce.

Best of all, many Hawaiian names are unisex, so you can use most of these no matter whether you’re expecting a kaikamahine (girl) or a keiki kāne (boy).

Naming a baby can be scary. We can help! Check out our baby name database here.
