CORRECTED: Aloha. Answer:

"HA", in Hawai`i, is the "breathe of life". There is no real English translation

"WAI" is "fresh water", or "The water of life", or "living waters".

"I" is, for one thing, the concept of a supreme God, or conscienceness.

If you put these all together, Hawai`i, actually pronounced ha-vwy-ee (with the e being completely separate), means.....

God breathed life to the waters.

Hawaii means aloha which means hello/goodbye/love
