For Kamehameha's own name, I think of a name that fits the phrase 'something-something-Ha!', When my wife replied with a joke, "Kamehameha sounds good, does not it?" So I too use it. Of course, the name was taken from King Kamehameha of the Kingdom of Hawaii.
I have often been asked whether I am looking for martial arts references for techniques and pose styles; though I've seen a lot of Kung-Fu movies, to his surprise, I'm not really interested in martial arts myself. "
So, that is, the origin of this name came from the leader of the Hawaiian kingdom in 1810 named King Kamehameha. Interestingly, the division of the king's name is not Kamehame-Ha but Ka-mehameha. "Ka" in Hawaiian means "somebody" while " mehameha " means "loneliness", if combined into "someone who is lonely."
