Aloha (pron.: /??lo?.?/, not /??lo?h??/) is a census-designated place and an unincorporated community in Washington County, Oregon, United States. By road it is 10. miles (17. km) west of downtown Portland. As of the 2010 Census, the population was 49,425.
On January 9, 1912, the community received its name with the opening of a post office named Aloha; the area had previously been known as Wheeler Crossing. According to Oregon Geographic Names, the origin of the name Aloha is disputed. Some sources say it was named by Robert Caples, a railroad worker, but it is unknown why the name was chosen. In 1983 Joseph H. Buck claimed that his uncle, the first postmaster, Julius Buck, named the office "Aloah" after a small resort on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin. Supposedly the last two letters were transposed by the Post Office during the application process. The local pronunciation, however, has remained Ah-low-wa rather than Ah-lo-ha.
