Aloha! I arrived in Hawai’i yesterday for my sister-in-law’s wedding (which was this morning). I’ll be here for the next few weeks.
So far I’ve found two interesting names…and, ironically, neither of them are Hawai’ian:
- The O’ahu guidebook in our hotel room features the work of a photographer named Twain. I’m guessing his name was inspired by writer Mark Twain.
- The music for tonight’s dinner cruise was provided by a fellow named Sefa, who was born in Samoa. Sefa is a short form of Iosefa, which is one of the many versions of Joseph.
Also, according to a keychain I couldn’t stop my husband from purchasing, the Hawai’ian equivalent of my own name is apparently Naneki. :)
