Pronounce the following randomly picked Hawaiian words OR names for places in Hawaii by spelling thm as they sound. 

Easy :

Kula  Koo-la 
Haiku Hi-coo 
Hale Ha-lay 
Aina Ah-ee-na
Pukalani Poo-kuh-la-ni
Wailea Why-e-lay-ah
Manoa Ma-know-ah
Pono Exactly how it is Po *as in po-lice! and No as is No soup for you!
Koka Co-kah


Medium :

Kekaulike Kay-kah-oo-lee-kay
Kamehameha kah-may-ah-may-ah
Waialala Why-ah-lay-ah
Kilauea
Kill-ah-way-ah
Humuhumunukunukuapuaa Who-muh-who-muh-nuke-uh-nuke-ah-poo-ah-ah (type of fish)
Maalaea Mah-ah-la-ay-ah


Hard :

Mele Kalikimaka  may-lay kah-lee-kee-mah-kah
Hauoli Makahiki Ho Ha-oo-li Makah-ee-kee Ho
Pipeline Bra, let's go to like...pipeline! catch some nar-nar waves duuuude!
Kalehuawehe  Kah-lay-oo-ah-way-hay
Niihau Knee-How


I may add more later.

Knock yourself out.

EDIT : No google lazy people, use your intuition.

I can say most of those correctly in person, but trying to spell them phonetically its hard.
