  • Literally, home [of the] frigate bird. The ʻiwa is a poetic symbol for an attractive person, so the figurative meaning of the name is "home of attractive people." Haleʻiwa was originally the name of the dormitory building of the Waialua Female Seminary (1865-1882), a Protestant school built on the banks of Anahulu Stream. The name was permanently established in the area by the Haleʻiwa Hotel, a popular beach resort destination on the Oahu Railway and Land Co. train line from 1899 to 1943. When the hotel opened, the name was translated as "beautiful home."
