Hi genie. Me and my partner are expecting again and leaving it for a surprise to know the sex. We love Laylah-Rose for a girl but can't seem to find a boys name. We have a son named Jay. I was hoping for a Polynesian type of name for my partners Cook Island culture. Thanks ❤️
Do you know a Polynesian name?

This is a tough one... there aren't many names from that area of the Pacific that have made their way into modern society, let alone many pronounceable ones. However, there are a few that you might find appealing.
Eloni James (EE-Lone-ee)
Siaki Thomas (See-yakk-ee)
I also pulled some names from the Japanese and Indonesian cultures, which are similar in style and meaning to Polynesian names.
Akane (UH-Kahn-AAY) - "deep red"
Hiroshi (He-row-she) - "generous, prosperous"
Ichiro (Ee-chee-row) - "first son"
Kenta - "healthy, strong, big"
Ran - "orchid"
Rio - "village of cherry blossoms"
Taro - "big son"
Cinta - "love"
Dian - "candle"
Adi - "superior"
Hope this helps!
