Your translation is correct. I am doubtful of the translation in the app

That translation does not sound correct. Shouldn't it be 'Juma is a Tanzanian name'?

Sound in Duolingo is normally computer-generated. But Hawaiian and Swahili probably don't have very good/popular text-to-speech software, so they are being recorded by humans. Only some sentences have recordings.

Exactly. It's the same thing with the Irish course. And every so often, whoever attaches sound files to words/phrases will attach the wrong one, which is why you will sometimes get a sound file that sounds nothing like the written version. If you come across one of those, report it, using the "report" button.

Does this mean that in a specific groep, the esterosi is called tyrion, the Dutch girl esmee and the one tanzanian is called Juma,?
