How did you choose your kids' names?

Maile is our first daughter…

My husband is Hawaiian, so when we got pregnant we knew we wanted our kids to have names that reflected that origin a bit. Maile is our first daughter, and the name comes from the maile lei that is a special adornment for important events. Laina is actually an English name, but I love that if you scramble the letters in her name it’s the Hawaiian island my husband’s family is from, Lana’i. And we chose Kainoa because it was one of the few Hawaiian boy names that both my husband and I really loved.
