Kaiya

Perhaps inspired by the Hawaiian word for "sea" (kai). Some sources say it's Japanese, where the "kai" kanji can have a multitude of meanings depending on how it's written: "excellent," "sea," "meeting," "shellfish," or "everyone," to name a few, and the "ya" kanji could be "field," "coconut," or "dictionary" among other things. So basically, you can choose your own meaning from this one. "Excellent coconut," maybe?
