“X” First Names Translated Into Phonetic Hawaiian
The Hawaiian translations provided are phonetic and have no intentional literal meanings. The translations are done based on the sounds the name makes when said and the Hawaiian alphabet and word structure. Because there are only 13 letters in the Hawaiian language there are many names which sound similar and have the same phonetic translation and NO LITERAL TRANSLATION OR MEANING. In order to obtain a literal translation of a name you would need to know the literal meaning the name then translate it to the same exact meaning in Hawaiian. Contact the Bishop Museum if you would like a literal name translation where they have Hawaiian language experts available for hire for translation work.
