I just created a new domain name for my website where a personal vision of art is presented in the spirit of aloha.
The domain name www.IkeAloha.com is a combination of two Hawaiian words. The first is ike. According to The Hawaiian Dictionary on www.wehewehe.org it is a word of many meanings. Here are some of them.
1. nvt. To see, know, feel, greet, recognize, perceive, experience, be aware, understand; to receive revelations from the gods; knowledge, awareness, understanding, recognition, comprehension and hence learning; sense, as of hearing or sight; sensory, perceptive, vision. Ka ʻike ia āu ē ke akua (hula prayer), a knowledge basic, a knowledge flowering, a knowledge heard, a knowledge from kava offerings; this is the knowledge.
a. To show, make known, display, tell, exhibit, reveal, indicate, inform, report, notify, explain, testify, cause to know or seen, discover, announce, acquaint; testimony, notice, information; identifying characteristic, proof, token guide, exhibition.
The second word is aloha. It is also a word of many meanings. Here are some from www.wehewehe.org :nvt., nvs. Aloha, love, affection, compassion, mercy, sympathy, pity, kindness, sentiment, grace, charity; greeting, salutation, regards; sweetheart, lover, loved one; beloved, loving, kind, compassionate, charitable, lovable; to love, be fond of; to show kindness, mercy, pity, charity, affection; to venerate; to remember with affection; to greet, hail.

Aloha kāua, may there be friendship or love between us, greetings (to one person); same as above, but to more than one person. Ke aloha nō! Aloha! Greetings!
