Pīkake

Pīkake (pr. pee-kah-kay) is the Hawaiian word for the jasmine flower as well as the Hawaiian word for the peacock. Apparently, Princess Kaiulani (the last Crown princess of Hawaii) loved both peacocks and jasmine flower, so when jasmine was first introduced to Hawaii it quickly became her favorite flower, named after her favorite animal.
