The word Hilo has multiple meanings but one of the main ones is "to braid our twist." It is also the name of a famous navigator. It is also the first or new moon and was derived from the earlier two meanings.
As the slender new moon sets in the western sky, it often has a twisted appearance thus having the name Hilo. Because this is the first moon it acts as a navigator for the moons to follow. Traditionally it was felt that this was a good moon for deep sea fishing but bad for reef fishing and gathering of any below ground roots and vegetables. Hilo is also a type of grass, mau‘u Hilo, as well as a variety of sweet potatoes.
