Maybe you fell in love with Hawaii on your honeymoon or during a vacation and want to impart some of that tropical magic on your child. If so, consider Makenna, a spelling variant of the Maui place name Makena, which translates to “many gathered.” Though it’s unisex, the name feels more girly, maybe because of the ending vowel A. Makenna has been a listing on the baby-name charts since the 1990s, though the world is still waiting for a celebrity baby to give this gentle name its day in the sun.
