Personal experiences with the name Kailani

I named my baby girl kailani born August 10th 2006... According to the government website there was another baby born with that name in 2007.

WOW!!! That is crazy! My daughter was born on August 10, 2004 and her middle name is Kailani. What a coincidence on the birthday and name!

My youngest child's name is Kailani. She passed at two weeks old though. I never heard of another Kailani before but now two of her older cousins have the same name. Her name was first going to be Kalani but I wanted to call her Kai so Kailani it was.

I named my beautiful daughter Kailani Elizabeth, born February 5, 2004!

Our daughter was born January 9, 2007 and we named her Kailani Lynn. When we honeymooned in Hawaii in May 1990 one of the girls from the concierge was named Kailani. We knew then when we had a little girl that would be her name. Who knew it would take us 17 years. We kept it a secret for fear of someone stealing that name from us.
