Meaning:Heavenly lei; Royal child of heaven
If baby has Hawaiian roots, you're destined to fall head over heels for the darling girl's name Lalani. While its more common form, Leilani, has graced top baby name lists for nearly a century, this rarer form is only beginning its journey to stardom. Meaning "heavenly lei" and "royal child of heaven," Lalani is guaranteed to inspire in baby an everlasting kinship to Hawaiian culture. Traditionally, a lei is a floral garland that symbolises love, friendship, celebration, and honor. American singer Bing Crosby famously wrote a song about them, entitled "Sweet Leilani." What a beautiful first lullaby for baby!
