Meaning:Warrior child; Trophy
With Pacific Island origins, Tamatoa is a unique boy’s name. When traced through its Samoan origins, the name means “warrior child,” while it interestingly means “trophy” when looked at through its Maori links. This is particularly on the nose, as you might recognize this name as belonging to the gregarious, jewel-encrusted giant coconut crab in the Disney movie Moana. Arguably one of the best characters, with the best song, Tamatoa collects various shiny treasures to decorate his shell with. Whether your little one is more like the fictional crab collecting souvenirs, or like a fierce warrior defending these prizes, he is sure to live up to his name.
