Meaning:chief; spiritual food
Though flowing from the lips like a cool island breeze, Ailani is a Hawaiian feminine name that holds far more sustenance. Composed of the Hawaiian lani, meaning "sky" or "heavens" in association with royalty, Ailani is typically defined as "chief." However, Ailani possesses so much more than status and gentle guidance, bearing close resemblance to the term ʻAi lani, which means "spiritual food." In Hawaiin culture, 'ai is the eating of specifically plant food, making Ailani a great contender for parents who embrace the Vegan lifestyle. In every essence of its being, Ailani encompasses the qualities of a great leader, not least of all compassion, authenticity, and integrity.
