Meaning:Warrior; the Koa tree
Kekoa is a masculine Hawaiian name replete with many brave and admirable connotations. It stems from the Hawaiian word koa, which means "warrior," and is simultaneously linked to the indigenous Koa tree. What's fascinating about this distinctive acacia tree is not just its uniqueness to Hawaiian land but its significance to the culture's history. In the late 1700s, the Koa tree was the essential component of canoes, swords, melee weapons, and more, cementing its connection with the ancient warriors. It is for precisely this reason they share a common name, instilling Kekoa with power, gravitas, and long-held tradition.
