Hawaiian names I can think of are:
Mo'o (moh-[' is a short pause]-oh) means lizard and can imply to mean dragon
Moana (moh-wah-nah) means deep ocean. I know it doesn't live in the ocean, I just like the name.
Wai (vaee, yes its spelt with a W, but pronounced with a V) means water or fresh water
Ōma'o (OH-mah-[short pause]-oh) shortened from ōma'oma'o (OH-mah-[short pause]-oh-mah-[short pause]-oh) meaning green
Li'i (lee-[short pause]-ee) shortened from li'ili'i (lee-[short pause]-ee-lee-[short pause]-ee) meaning small
Weli (veh-lee) shortened from weliweli (veh-lee-veh-lee) meaning ferocious
Kolohe (koh-loh-heh) means rascal. That's the name of my dog.
Sorry, I don't know any other exotic languages, only Hawaiian.
