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

I personally love this name. I've used it for several of my characters.

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

Pronounced lay-LAH-nee.

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

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 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.

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

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.

Probably best known from the song "Sweet Leilani."

I love this name. I also like other variations like Leilana and Leiliana.

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

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.

I think of this as a classic Hawaiian name, along with Noelani. It fits well with non-Hawaiian names.
-- GoodNightingale  9/16/2013
From the Hawaiian words lei (garland) and lani (heaven).

The Australian band Hoodoo Gurus have a song called Leilani.

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

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

Another way of spelling this name is Laylonnie.
-- Aloma laylonnie  12/17/2015
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.

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.
