    Nakaii is a native American name.
    The meaning of the name Nakai is "He who comes from a fair place"

    Nakaii is what Maldivians call the months of the Calandar.
    Each nakaii is 13 or 14 days. It is divided into two seasons. Iruvai and Hulhangu monsoon.
    The said calendar remains the most trust worthy source for determining the best time for
    travel, shipping and planting crops even at the present.
