The name of Hawai`i's biggest island -- fondly called "The Big Island -- is actually Hawai`i.
There is currently discussion among citizens and Hawaiian culture organizations on the Big Island -- I mean, Hawai`i -- on whether to call the island by its real name (Hawai`i) or its nickname (The Big Island).
The Hawai`i Island Mayor reports that the local Kupuna remind him that he should always call Hawai`i Hawai`i. But man-on-the-beach interviews show that we've all gotten used to calling it The Big Island.
Hawai`i Island is home to the very active, but not too dangerous, Kilauea Volcano and giant Mauna Loa, a mountain which until recently second in size to Olympia Mons on Mars. Another outer space discovery has moved Mauna Loa into third place.
