Meaning:Garden island; Place around the neck
Kauai is a boy's name replete with vibrancy and nourishing natural beauty. Named for the Hawaiian island Kauaʻi a, Kauai means "garden island"—Yet legend suggests a much sweeter translation. Founded by the mythical Hawaiian navigator Hawaiʻiloa, Kauaʻi a is said to be named after the fisherman's beloved son and bears the meaning "place around the neck." Honoring how a parent would affectionately carry their little one, this unique translation turns Kauai into a lifelong symbol of security and unconditional love.
