Lili?uokalani was to the High Chieftess Analea Keohokalole and High Chief Caesar Kaluaiku Kapa?akea. In accordance with the Hawaiian tradition of hanai, she was adopted at birth by Abner Paki and his wife Laura Konia. Lili?uokalani’s childhood years were spent studying and playing with her foster sister Bernice Pauahi, the Pakis' natural daughter.

The Premier Elizabeth Kina?u had developed an eye infection at the time of Lili?u's birth. She gave her the names Lili?u (smarting), Loloku (tearful), Walania (a burning pain), and Kamaka?eha (sore eyes). Lili?u's brother changed it when he named her Crown Princess, calling her Lili?uokalani, "the smarting of the royal ones".
