Kona is a popular name in Hawaii, as Kailua-Kona is one of the biggest towns on the Big Island. Of course, there’s also Kona beer, Kona coffee, Kona winds — you get the point. And while it is a popular name for boys and girls on the Hawaiin islands, it is mostly a girl’s name when it comes to beloved pets.
While it is ever-present in Hawaii, the name Kona is used all over the world. In Greenland, for example, it means “woman” or “wife.” One translation in Hawaii means “lady.” But, also in Hawaii, it means “the world ruler” as well.
