Other Origin(s):Indian
Meaning:Bird; Ancient language
Pali as a girl’s name is a version of the Hawaiian term palila, meaning “bird.” If you want to help your little one connect with your Hawaiian heritage, this name can be a sweet way to encourage them to spread their wings. Further east, Pali is an ancient, sacred language of the Buddhists and is also referred to as the language of the Magadha of the historic Maurya Empire. It’s possible that the greatest emperor of India, Ashoka, spoke Pali. How wonderful for baby to share this royal legacy!
