I named our daughter, who is Korean/American, Hayan Leilani. Her name translated into English means white heavenly flower. I find that it fits her perfectly. I personally love the traditions of Korea and Hawaii and she has both.

A census-designated place in Hawaii was named "Leilani Estate". The recent volcano fissure caused lava flows that have devastated the community.

Leilani Dowding is an English former Page 3 girl, glamour model, television celebrity, and the UK representative at Miss Universe 1998. After her success in beauty pageants, Dowding dropped out of university to pursue a full-time modelling career. Although she had not originally considered topless modelling, she started appearing as a Page 3 girl in The Sun in 1999. Her younger sister Melanie ("Mel") Dowding also had a brief career as a model. Dowding appeared on a charity Page 3 episode of The Weakest Link where she lost out in the final round to Jakki Degg. Dowding was competing on behalf of the RSPCA and breast cancer charities. She joked before the show: "I look forward to using my brain for the first time in three years."

My daughter is named Leilani. I fell in love with this name because of its meaning. Leilani was born on her late sister's birthday 6 years later. Her sister's name was Emmilee rose, she is in heaven. So when I saw it meant heavenly flower it was a way to honor the sister she never met. It's the perfect name. Beautiful name for a beautiful girl.

I think a possible nickname would be Leila and I like the name not because it's my name but because I love the meaning of it.

Why does the website say that this name is pronounced LAY-lah-nee? I'm pretty sure it's lay-LAH-nee. [noted -ed]

I love this name, along with Nalani. I think I like Nalani a little bit better, but this name is still very beautiful.

From the Hawaiian words lei (garland) and lani (heaven).

I think of this as a classic Hawaiian name, along with Noelani. It fits well with non-Hawaiian names.

I knew a girl in elementary school that had the same name. Never came across another girl with a name like that again. It's a very beautiful name and it's unique too.

This name is exceedingly beautiful in sound and meaning - it makes me think of a bough of creamy frangipani blossoms.

A somewhat famous bearer is the young Leilani Guiterrez. After being severely injured when a federal employee ran a red light on Mother's Day, she managed to stay cheerful even in times of hardship. She and her mother have appeared in commercials supporting stem cell research.

If I have twin girls I might name them Laelia and Leilani. How cute is that! (Pronounced lay-LEE-ah and lay-LAH-nee).

I first discovered this name because I saw it as the name of a street on a street-sign. I thought it was a beautiful name, but I didn't think it was real. But now I know it is. It's pretty.

I think Leilani is a very pretty name. Just the thought of "heavenly flowers" makes you think this name is beautiful. I think a good nickname would be Lei or Lani.

I love this name! A possible nickname could be Lani. Leilani sounds very Hawiian.

A variant of Leilani is Leilana. I saw it spelled that way in a book called Island of the Innocent by Lynn & Gilbert Morris.

This is probably the most popular and well known Hawaiian name.
