Hawaiian Word For Love?

I am NOT feeling the love today - from anyone! With the economy in disarray, and everyone always panicked and on their toes its no wonder that all the love is disappearing. What always brings me back to love is Hawaii. I met my husband there and was married there, I love the Hawaiian people, I love the Hawaiian lifestyle, the list of Hawaiian love goes on. So as I continue on my culture path on this blog, I thought I would share the Hawaiian word for love, and some other romantic words and phrases. This will give you enough time to practice for Valentine's Day so you can surprise your special someone!

Aloha - Love
Nani - Beautiful/Beauty
Lani - Heaven
Honi - Kiss
Hau Ľoli — Happiness
Ipo — Sweetheart or Lover

Aloha Au Ia 'Oe - I Love You
E Hoomau Maua Kealoha - May Our Love Last Forever
E Ku'u Aloha - My Love
Aloha Nui Loa - Very Much Love

Hi Natalani, I am in Sydney Australia (hello from Oz) and planning my second visit to Hawaii. The first was wonderful, but tinged with a bit of sadness. My marriage had just ended and I was turning 50... I decided it was going to be an Hawaii '5-0' birthday for myself! It is now 4 1/2 years later and I am returning for a holiday, with my wonderful new partner who has never been to Hawaii before. Just found your blog and am now following it. Most intrigued about your romance with Hawaii. Will plough through the back posts and if OK with you would love to post some questions about Hawaii. By the way I blog too, you can see it: http://citymousecountrymouse-kos.blogspot.com/

I too found your blog when I googled 'love in hawaiian'. You've done such a fantastic job putting this blog together and while I am not much of a blogger myself I've found yours particularly interesting. Thankyou for everything you have shared here. I'm headed to Hawaii for my second visit at the end of January, I cannot wait! Stay safe and keep up the great work, Amanda from Sydney.

Moving to the Big Island in two weeks from New Mexico. I dreamed of visiting Hawaii before visiting several of the islands two years ago, then dreamed of her every day since...not sure what I will be doing or why, but she calls....
