Visit the rolling waves and sandy beaches of the South Pacific with Polynesian girl names. Loaded with melodic monikers rich with meaning, you’re sure to find a name that speaks to your heart. Explore them with us.

More common in the U.S. than their male counterparts, Polynesian girl names are picking up steam on the baby name charts. Leilani has long been the leader of this movement, and with her gorgeous meaning of “heavenly flower,” we see why. She’s cleared the way for other Polynesian princesses like Malia, Alani, and Kailani to join her. Each offers its own flavor of beauty and works well with other monikers toward the top of the charts.

Polynesian girl names that are less popular but fit common trends are plentiful as well. Kai is an obvious choice, as she’s unisex and petite like Nova and Eden. Kalia is another option since K names are beloved for girls along with the dainty -lia ending. Her meaning of “the flower wreath” is beautiful, too. We also love the simple elegance of Lani, and she’s right at home beside Lily and Lucy. As you browse Polynesian girl names, you’ll notice how easily many of them work with today’s top styles.

While searching Polynesian girl names, you’ll notice a few longer options like Nohealani, a gorgeous find meaning “beauty from heaven.” You can use the obvious nickname Lani for her, or you can go for a tomboyish Noa. Kaleikaumaka is another striking choice with a lengthy meaning of “the beloved child to look upon with pride and love.” Not only is her sound soothing, but her meaning perfectly encapsulates your baby girl’s place in your life. Alohilani and Pilialoha round out our highlights in this group. They have the energy and beauty of the islands in their stunning sounds.

If you’re completely stuck, you can also turn to our favorite place for inspiration: meanings. You might’ve already noticed as we’ve gone along just how beautiful Polynesian girl names’ meanings are. Kehlani’s “sea heavens” is our first stop in meanings. The imagery is stunning, and it perfectly fits the name’s beauty. We can’t get enough of Leiko, either, a sweet pick that means “little flower.” Not to be outdone, the musically linked Alanis means “precious,” which is more than fitting for a precious baby girl. For nature name lovers, there’s Mahina, a lovely name meaning “moon.”

You could also go for names that are proudly Polynesian like Hawaii. She’s a place name that’s certainly usable, just like other state names, Montana and Arizona. You could also use Hawaiian island names like Lanai for your beautiful baby girl. There’s Aloha, too. This cutie meaning “love” is also a greeting, however, so if you live on the islands, we might recommend her for the middle name slot instead to pay homage to your heritage.
