Meaning:Porch, veranda
Lanai is a feminine name embodying reflection and a sense of place. Hawaiian in origin, Lanai is largely attributed to lānai, which represents an open-sided "veranda" or "porch." And while the meaning may not appear deeply profound, in Hawaiian culture, Lanai is associated with kicking back and embracing life. So often used at the beginning or end of the day, lānai is the space for true relaxation where one can feel at peace in their world. For baby, Lanai reminds them always of the power of gratitude and the merit of staying in the moment.
