Her given first name, Victoria, was a tribute to the then reigning Queen regnant of Great Britain. In July 1843, Queen Victoria had helped to restore the sovereignty and independence of the Kingdom of Hawaii during the reign of King Kamehameha III. Just like Queen Victoria, whose given names were Alexandrina Victoria, but who chose not to use her given first name and to be called simply Victoria, Princess Ka'iulani chose not to use her given first name of Victoria, and to be called simply Ka'iulani.
