#AlexOLoughlin and His Hawaiian Name

Over the years we have had a number of discussions about Alex’s Hawaiian name.

We first heard that it was Kekau, when Alex revealed it while he was live tweeting on the CBS account for Episode 4:01.

Until today we have not really been able to find a meaning for the name Kekau. And therefore there has been some feeling that Alex might have made a typo when he originally tweeted the name back in 2013.

My thought has always been that a typo can be possible, but that Alex is normally very accurate with things like names. I therefore doubt that a mistake was made. And unless Alex ever says that he typed incorrectly, I will believe what was said by him and will take the name Kekau as the correct one.

 Lucky for us, this is what a busy little Bee found today on a site called NamesLook.

Of course we are not sure where they get all the information from, to update the site and how accurate it is, but this is what they had to say:

Meaning of Kekau: 

Clever, Great Mankind, Strengthful

  • Clever is easy to understand and although Strengthful is a weird word for me, it seems to mean Strong.  But I am not sure what is meant by Great Mankind ?

Only Alex and the Kahuna who named him when he was blessed into Hawaii, will know if this is also the meaning of what they had in mind when they named him Kekau.

Maybe one day he will actually share that information with us all.

  • On the NamesLook site they also go on to say that the numerology of the name Kekau is 4 and then explains what that means.

 I guess we all find what we want, in what they say in these type of descriptions. But whether one believes in such things or not, I actually found this description very interesting …..

“You are the bedrock of society, the foundation of any enterprise. You are an organizer and manager. Your approach to life and to problems is methodical and systematic. You are a builder and a doer. You turn dreams into reality. You possess a highly developed sense of structure. You enjoy management systems, and can carry out your well laid plans. You are not the type to embark on any trip without a map.”

“You want to be of service to the world. Your deepest satisfaction comes from knowing that you have advanced the cause of humanity. Your ideals are of the highest order. You are a perfectionist. You strive to make the world a utopia; to make each person’s lot in life better; to become perfect yourself. One of your challenges in life is to strive toward your lofty goals and at the same time recognize the good you are doing.”

  • Personality analysis of Kekau by personality number 4

“You radiate reliability and consistency. People trust you and feel secure with your judgment. You are seen as a cornerstone of a business and are relied upon to do your work efficiently and expertly. You have strength and respectability. You tend to dress in a utilitarian manner, concerned mostly with convention, practicality, durability, and price. You present yourself as someone who values correctness, control, and precision.”

Maybe some of the things mentioned here, can be compared to things said in interviews with Alex, and also in the words of what others have to say about him. What do you think?

And just for interest sake I also looked up my own name on the site as well, and it was kind of spot on for how I feel about myself. Of course I looked at the names Alex and Alexander and found the analysis of those two names also interesting.

But remember, this is all just for fun and not to be taken as gospel.

Remember being a fan is about having some fun with other fans. It is not about taking yourself, other fans or your subject of adoration too seriously.

Relax and enjoy the ride, even if it is with some rose tinted glasses along the way …….
