Meaning:Calm as the heavens, serenity of the skies
The feminine Hawaiian name Nalani means "calm as the heavens" or “serenity of the skies.” Taking in a deep breath and looking up at a clear sky can bring a sense of calmness and tranquility to your body and soul. But the horizon isn’t the only place of solace anymore! Instead, you can look down at baby Nalani and see the serenity of the skies in their eyes, giving you the same euphoric feeling no matter the weather.
