Is something wrong with "kuʻu lā hānau"? It was accepted as a typo, but sounds right to me.

Ko'u is my, as far as I know

Somebody else pointed out to me that the "ku'u" I am so familiar with from mele means something like "my dear, my beloved." Doesn't work for one's birthday, and that was what was wrong.
