Would you name your LO Koa?

We are expecting our second son and can not agree on a name.

What do you think of Koa?

What unique boy names do you love?

ETA: He is going to be half Chinese, half white.

We named DS Rowan. It is a name that isn't obscure but isn't common. That worked for us.

If we have another son his name will be Rhys. Reece is a more common name these days but the Welsh spelling is not so sort of a compromise.

Koa would be too unique for us. I voted No.

I know it is Hawaiian but the first thing that pops in my head is the KOA camping sites.

My boys have old school Greek and Italian names. My dd has a traditional Nigerian name.

I wouldn't use it but that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it. Why not take inspiration from the Hawaii trip and look up other boys names?
