Lae Ahi vs. Leahi—This is a question to the our oldsters of Hawaii, what is the correct name which we are calling Daimana Hila [Diamond Head]? Is it Lae Ahi or Leahi perhaps? Reply quickly with the correct answer. Ninau.
[We believe that Lae Ahi [“brow of the tuna”] is the correct name because it has meaning, and because Leahi does not. But should Leahi be a contraction, and it means the same thing as Lae Ahi, then Leahi is shorter and faster to say. Editor.]
