(I usually limit myself to one name per letter, but there was no way I could choose between “Seigneur,” “Smile” and “Surprise” on the boys’ list.)

Possible explanations for some of the above:

  • Himalaya, the mountain range in Asia (means “abode of snow” in Sanskrit)
  • Om Shanti, the salutation/chant (shanti means “peace” in Sanskrit)
  • Aliocha Schneider, Canadian actor (born Nicolas Schneider)
  • “Bien faire,” French for “do well”
  • Seigneur, originally a French title referring to a feudal lord
  • Tommy Gunn, short for Thompson submachine gun
  • Yom Tov, the Jewish greeting (shortened from yamim tovim, “good days,” referring to Jewish holidays)

(I posted more of Quebec’s unique baby names over on Patreon.)

In 2017, the top two names were the same.

Phone Book Fishing on Lanai – Febelyn, Laikealoha, Na’alehua, Vilmar

The bad news is that my time in Hawaii is almost over.

The good news is that the phone book here on Maui (our last stop) actually covers three islands: Lanai, Maui and Molokai. So the phone book fishing has been quite good. :)

The section on Lanai is just 6 pages long, so let’s start with that one. Most of the names on Lanai are Spanish, but I saw some Hawaiian, English and Japanese names as well. Here are some names that stood out:

Bergilio
Celedonio
Chiyoshi
Cidronio
Clacida
Daisylee
Eulogio
Febelyn
Feliza
Flordelino
Garek
Jovito
Kahau
Kahokuao
Keo
Keola
Laikealoha
Lilinoe
Lowelyn
Marieza
Medard
Mileka
Na’alehua
Orlino
Reinario
Rizalino
Romelias
Sivanila
Vilmar
Willynn

I’ll read through the Molokai names later today. Maui I may not get to — there are over 200 pages in that section — but I’ll do my best.
