http://www.alohafriendsluau.com/names_traditional.html has a listing for Okalani which confirms the meaning "From Heaven."

I know that Lani means "Heaven" in Hawaiian and it is used as an element in many names. I could not confirm the meaning of Oka through my own research, however. The meanings I found for Oka (as a word) are "crumb, grounds, remnents." For 'Oka I found the meaning "oak (tree/wood.)" To find those meanings I used http://wehewehe.org/ . While the dictionary listed Lani as a name element it did not list Oka or 'Oka as one.

I'm not an expert but maybe this will help you.
