I named my son Makai 14 years ago and I absolutely love the name. His middle name is Alexander. I had to change the'spelling when he was 2 years old because when people saw it, they couldnt pronounce. I used to spell it "mekhi" but i changed it to "makai"..The average person gets it right the first time.

I named my son Makai Anthony in 2020... I LOVE the name and so does everyone else; i havent met another makai yet... (Most) people pronounce it right, but I couldnt have picked a better name for him!

Our son is Makai (Mack-eye) Daniel. Kai for short. He is 9 months old and his name totally suits him. Nobody knows how to spell it (he's going to have to spell it out his entire life) but we only get positive reaction to it. Love his name. No regrets.

I named my son Makai Jamahl in 2018 and It'suits him perfectly. Liked the Mekhi spelling, but knew it would be mispronounced. I first heard it when'the actor Mekhi Pheifer'starred in "Clockers". But I had to find the meaning first as the poster above stated so as not to burden him w a name that would not suit him or his destiny.

MakaI'means ocean in the Hawaiian language. It does not mean Matthew or reference to God in Hawaiian. The Biabala Hemolele (Hawaiian Bible) name for Matthew is Mataio. Please take care and caution when using Hawaiian words to name your children, as you give your child all that the name contains (of those who have carried the name in the past), which can be a tremendous burden. The Hawaiian language carries kaona, which means hidden meaning. Our recommendation is that Hawaiian names not be used if you are not of Hawaiian ancestry or offered the name by someone of Hawaiian ancestry who has the authority and ability to present an individual with a name. Miss naming a child in Hawaiian can place tremendous burden and pain on a keiki.

My son is named Makaii angelo. I'd never heard of the name until I'met my anaesthetist and he was called maki. I love the name and have never met another child with this name

My son is named Makai. Most people pronounce it correctly...some don't and think It's a girls name. But when I tell people his name...they all LOVE it!!

So my husband and I are thinking of naming our baby Makai if we have a boy! I love that Makai is a form of Matthew which means a "gift of God", and also Michael which means, "who is like God?" Not only that! We conceived while in Hawaii staying at "Makai Club" . . . perfect fit I'd say! :) We will probably go with Makai TIt's (my dad's first name is Mark and my father in law is Tim . . . so the lettering could follow them!)

My daughters middle name is MAKKAI. I love the name. She does too. Her first name is Aja. More people miss pronounce 'Aja' but have no problem with 'Makkai'!

Its my name, ive had people pronounce it mah-kaye or they just dont know how to say It'so they ask. I pronounce it Mah-kye. Ive never met anyone with my name, but my sister named her'son Kai :)

My sons name is Daiven Makai. Daiven pronounced like Raven and Makai... Mu like mud and kai like kite. No one ever gets his first name right. And everyone loves the name Makai when I tell them it means towards the'sea. Hawaiian verbage means like a direction, but everyone else thinks it kind of reminds them of walking on a beach towards the ocean. Has a coolness factor to it.

I love this name! & when my son becomes famous, this name will be on the rise!!!

3/29/2022 12:32:42 PM

Mikai or Makai? For a boy....not sure what spelling to use

I'm thinking about naming my newborn son this name, but is a little hesitant on how people will not only pronounce it but percieive the name.

We named our son Tanner when he was born 8 months ago. We LOVE it and have gotten so many compliments on his name. One nice surprise is that if we were going to have a girl, my husband wanted her name to be Brianna after his grandmother named Anna but that name is already taken in our family. Our Tanner is a boy of course, but ironically, Tanner has "ann" in it, we didn't even plan it - perfect!

yes they speell my 6mths old nuese name wrong and they dont how to say it

7/5/2021 7:12:18 PM

We named our daughter Malakai! We think It'sounds more feminine. We love it and most people love it for her too, especially when we tell them what it means. She is truly our "Angel/Messenger of GOD", and her actions reminds us daily! I have heard of a few other Malakai's who are also girls!!!
