The names can be a word, phrase or name from the Hawaiian language, or related to Hawaii in some other way.

Yea...read the story.. Hawaiian names.

Great, just what the world needs...2 more highly intelligent mammals forced to live out their lives in a giant aquarium, so they can do stupid tricks for human entertainment and profit. These animals are not meant to be "studied" in captivity where their behavior is not natural.
Please, if anyone disagrees with me, before you make a comment, watch Jean-Michel Cousteau's video regarding the death of the killer whale trainer in Florida. Just go to youtube and type in his name. Nobody would know more than him how and why these animals suffer in captivity.

My mistake. I confess I did not see that in the story. Thank you for correcting me.

It does seem silly to be giving Hawaiian names to Atlantic dolphins.

Sort of reminds me of Atlantic sea bass from Chile.

In that case my submissions for names are:

Don Ho (late Hawaiian entertainer)
Chin Ho (family was in the newspaper business in Honolulu)
Jack Lord (late gay actor who starred in the TV show "Hawaii 50")
Keola and Kapomo (Beamer brothers: well-known singers)
Zulu (another actor from "Hawaii 50")
Danno ditto
