      I want to wish a friend’s birthday and she speaks Hawaiian. How do I say “Happy Birthday” in the Hawaiian language?

      Happy Birthday translates to “Hauoli Lā Hānau” in Hawaiian. The meaning of “Hauoli” is “happy; fun; joy,” the meaning of “Lā” is “Day”, and the meaning of “Hānau” is “birth; born.”

      Hau`oli Lā Hānau is the phrase that is used to say Happy birthday in Hawaiian language.

      You might have noticed a different “a” used in “Lā” and “Hānau”. Actually they are called macron, or kahakō. They are used to differentiate between short and long vowel sound. “ā” Indicates longer vowel sound here.
