From the name of Hawaiian feathered regalia used to symbolize the ali'i (nobility). It also coincides with the Hawaiian name of several plants, such as the crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica), the kahili ginger (Hedychium gardnerarium), and the red silky oak (Grevillea banksii). Like most pre-contact Hawaiian names, it is a unisex name, appearing on both men and women in 19th-century marriage records.This name was used in Pokemon Sun and Moon as the name of a female Flying-type Elite Four member, in which case it is also derived from the name of a golf course located in Maui, Hawaii (fittingly enough, the character is a golfer).
