Surf's Up the movie and My Nickname

My middle name is Nohalani so people often call me Lani. I love it! It's spunky, original and breezy. I love the meaning and Hawaiian association.

------
My name is Lani, and I've grown to love it, but growing up in the Midwest I was commonly called Lainey and other similar names. I also was always asked what Lani was short for. People thought my full first name would be Leilani, but it's just Lani.
