****Kaulananapua must have come from the Hawaiian patriotic song “Kaulana Na Pua.” The title translates to “famous are the flowers.”

These 150+ names actually represent a sizeable chunk of the population (estimated at somewhere between 7,000 and 8,000 residents).

P.S. One other name I noticed while searching was Deepak Chopra. My first thought was, “Wow, someone has the same name as Deepak Chopra?” Then I did some digging, and it seems that the real Dr. Chopra does indeed have ties to the island. So…if you want to call Deepak Chopra directly, try the Molokai white pages.
