I'm not fluent in Hawaiian but the explanation I have is"

A Gathering of Wharrams
Hui Wharram -- Hawaiian name. In long form “Hui-o-waa-Kaulua-Wharram”. “Hui” means a group or gathering united for a common purpose (further: “o” means of, “waa” means canoe and is pronounced va-a with both a's short, “Kaulua” means two hull (Kau=hull and lua= two)). So, it literally means a gathering of two-hull Wharram canoes. In the short form "Hui Wharram " – a group or gathering of Wharrams.
