What does the name Hawaii mean?
"Homeland" is the strictest definition. I believe it's an old Polynesian term.
Other then Hawaii being the 50th state I'm not aware of any other meanings.
This is what I found out when I googled it: (Ha) "From the breath of life" (Wai) "Comes the water of life" (i) "which emanates from the supreme". That was from 'Cha Cha'...sounds good to me.
