Protector of children, navigator
The word for child(ren) is usually keiki and navigator is Ho'okele. I do not know the word for protector but I do know what Na (normally spelled Nā) is plural for the. Singular would be ka or ke. Inoa means name. So it would literally mean "the names" less poetic/spectacular yes but that is what it means regardless of what baby name books and websites tell you. Anyone with some knowledge of the Hawaiian language would agree.
