In general those names don't sound like traditional Samoan. Samoans don't use SH , it sounds like African American influence to me. Usually the consonant and vowels sounds alternate, though sometimes there is a string of vowels too fa'a'a'aa :)

Okay, these are not real names, but it looks more like Samoan.

Okay, help this family out, what Samoan names are close in sound to hers?
