Hawaiian Ks

Wednesday, April 13, 2016


Kalani (m/f)   The heavens, origin – Hawaiian
Kalea (f)         Joy, happiness, origin – Hawaiian
Kalliope (f)    Beautiful voice, goddess of poetry, one of the nine muses in Greek mythology

Kahili (m)      Pronunciation kah-HEE-lee, feather standard, origin – Hawaiian
Kaiholo (m)  Pronunciaton kie-HO-lo, moving sea, origin – Hawaiian
Kaiser (m)    Pronunciation KIES-…ôr, German variation of Ceasar, head full of hair,


So the Hawaiian names dominated today. I wonder what L will bring. Any names to share?

  5. I love the entomology of names. Basically how I name a lot of my main characters. Adds more for me while telling their stories.

  7. I love K names, particularly the Eastern European forms of names usually written with a C in English, like Klaudia, Klarisa, Karl, Karla, Klara, and Kara.
