Ainahau was the name of the ten acre Waikiki coconut grove and estate given to Princess Kaiulani by her godmother, Princess Ruth Keelikolani, at the baby princess's baptismal ceremony. It has been said that 500 coconut palms were planted in honor of Princess Kaiulani's birth. Ainahau was torn down in 1955 to make room for hotels and residential buildings.
