Through his mother, he has African American and Jewish roots, and through his father, he has Native Hawaiian, Irish, German, and Native American roots – his nationality is American. His long name is not uncommon in his ancestral island state of Hawaii, as Hawaiians often have much longer names than is common in most of the continental US. His name has also been the talk of the town, as many people have joked about how he could find enough space to place his signatures, or if it would fit on his birth certificate and other official documents.
In fact, his name, Nakoa-Wolf Manakaupo Namakaeha, is the same length story after it, as with most Hawaiian names. According to Lisa Bonet, his mother, the weather was terrible the day she gave birth to him, and seconds after the birth was over, the clouds turned into a storm that made her immediately decide on his name. Nakoa means “warrior”, Wolf is self-explanatory, Mana means “strength” and “spirit”, Kaua means “rain” and Po means “dark”. His middle name, Namakaeha, means “omniscient eyes”, and he shares it with his father. The surname Momoa means “dry” in Polynesian.
Parents and family
Nakoa-Wolf’s father is Jason Momoa, a Hollywood actor who rose to fame for his roles in many superhero movies, including ‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” from 2016, “Justice League” (2017) and the 2018 DC movie “Aquaman”. He was also part of the cast of the television series “Stargate Atlantis” which aired from 2004 to 2009, “Frontier” which premiered in 2016 and is still running as of the first half of 2020, and he also played the well-known role of Khal Drogo, the fierce husband of Daenerys Targarien, in the first season of one of the greatest epic fantasy series, “Game of Thrones”. Nakoa-Wolf’s mother is actress Lisa Michelle Bonet, also known as Lilakoi Moon.
She was a model who appeared in numerous beauty pageants, and was also a child star before landing the role of Denise Huxtable in the sitcom “The Cosby Show” for which she is remembered even today. She also featured prominently in the spin-off “A Different World”, during the show’s first season.
Nakoa-Wolf has an older sister named Lola Iolani Momoa, who was born at 23ed In July 2007 in Canada, when Lisa’s water broke early while Jason was filming, they had to rush to the nearest hospital to deliver her safely. He also has an older maternal stepsister, Zoe Isabella Kravitz, who died at 1st December 1988.
Zoe’s father is rock singer Lenny Kravitz, who met her mother several years before Zoe’s birth. However, Lisa and Lenny separated and divorced after six years of marriage in 1993, and Lisa met Jason Momoa in 2005. The couple married two years later, three months after Lola Iolani was born. The duo tried to keep their relationship a secret for as long as possible, but news of Lisa’s pregnancy and their love affair spread quickly.
Zoe Isabella got engaged to Karl Glusman in February 2018, with whom she has been in a relationship since 2016.
It is still not certain whether Nakoa-Wolf will become an actor like his parents, but his eldest sister, Zoe Kravitz, has already secured her place in the spotlight by starring in films such as “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “Rough Night” and “Divergent”. She will also play the role of Catwoman in the 2021 version of “Batman”. Still, Nakoa-Wolf had his small acting debut when he played Wolf in the 2019 movie “Mystery Boys”.
Despite being the second-born child of the famous couple, Nakoa-Wolf has always garnered more attention than his older sibling, and this is mainly because he closely resembles his father, even in style. He prefers to keep his hair long and wild, and seems to copy his father’s fashion sense. According to sourcesas of March 2020, Nakoa-Wolf lives in Topanga, Los Angeles, in a large family home with many pets but no TV set.
Because of his parents’ career, he has traveled the world with his family. He enjoys outdoor activities such as rock climbing, fishing and cycling. Nakoa-Wolf is very close to all of his siblings as well as his parents as he is often seen on all of their social media along with Lola Iolani.
In 2020, Nakoa-Wolf still has no social media accounts himself, which is not surprising considering he is only 11 years old. However, he can be seen on several of his father’s posts as Jason Momoa has quite a large following on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. Still, Jason does his best to hide his son from unwanted publicity. It is not even known if and where Nakoa-Wolf goes to school.
Nakoa-Wolf is just a child so it is not possible to give you his net worth. However, he comes from a wealthy family as is his father’s net worth estimated at over $14 million, and still growing.
Nakoa-Wolf has green eyes and long, brown, curly hair. He loves to dress like his father, which includes casual unbuttoned shirts and lots of jewelry. He is still a child so his exact height and weight are not known and as his father has a rather tall build of 1.93m he is likely to change a lot in the next few years.
