Celebrity baby name: Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha

Actors Lisa Bonet (a.k.a. Lilakoi Moon) and Jason Momoa (a.k.a. Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa) welcomed their second child together on December 15th.

The baby boy was named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.

In Hawaiian, Nakoa (na koa) means either “the warrior” or “the koa [tree].” Manakauapo includes elements meaning “spirit” (mana) “the rain” (ka ua) and “night” (po). Namakaeha, passed down from dad, seems to have something to do with “the eyes” (na maka), but I can’t figure out what the last element stands for.

Nakoa-Wolf joins big sister Lola Iolani Momoa and half-sister Zoe Isabella Kravitz.

  1. Found this online:

    “He was born on the stormest, rainy night. So Nakoa(warrior) … Mana (strength/spirit) Kaua(rain) po(dark) … The name was always going to be Nakoa-Wolf, but Jason did the research on first middle name, 2nd middle name as you know is Jason’s.”

    Well analyzed, Nancy.
