My hubby was stationed @Schofield Barracks and the 1st time I went down to see him, we went and saw a movie in Mililani town and we both decided right then if we ever have a girl we will name her Mililani. We LOVE the name and have matched it with a few middle names but keep changing our minds. We started with Mililani Faith (after his mom) then changed it to Mililani Reese, but now Hubby says he doesn't like it so much, so we are wanting another hawaiian name for the middle......Ideas???
