But I answer to "skinny crazy haole" any time...

This is a great link! Everybody should try this!


Wikoli = Vic
Sounds like "little wick".

On second thought, maybe it means short fuse.

Now back to my hamburger!

Laura = Lala

Don't really like that one, but my husband calls me Lola which translates to Lola.

Mine translated as Ole i'ka mala no'e pahalo'e hiva mi pano 'o kele malu malu (and I thinks that's just the nickname)

There was no translation for Tacky!

Actually, it's Palapala. I feel like I need to drive an Impala with a name like that.




Dennis = Kenike

I like "Kenike" better than "Juno." I think I'm gonna change it.



Dave in Hawaiian is Kawe

I wonder if I can apply for credit with this name? :lol:

SORRY your name wasn't in the database!


wait let me try again..proboaly mispelled my name..

Unkle Keoni has a nice ring, like the one i'll have in my head come day break
