Lauaki, a boy's Pacific Islander name, means "best," so it's a spot-on way to tell baby how much you think of him. This name holds an important place in Samoan history, as orator chief Lauaki Namulau'ulu Mamoe began the fight for political independence in Western Samoa in 1908. Lauaki was originally a chief title that came from Tonga, where it is also used as a surname. Baby can draw inspiration from history and feel emboldened to become a leader and improve the world around him.
