Hawaiian Name Translations and Common Hawaiian Phrases

In old Hawaii, the choice of a name, or "inoa," was very important. Your inoa was considered both a personal possession and a force in it's own right. Once spoken, the inoa assumed a mystical existence and the power to help and protect the one named. It was believed that the more a name was spoken, the more powerful it became.
