Etymology of Metrosideros: The generic name Metrosideros derives from the Ancient Greek metra or "heartwood" and sideron or "iron".

The species name polymorpha is also from Ancient Greek, and means "many forms".

The Hawaiian language word ʻŌhiʻa derives from Proto-Oceanic *kafika, the name of the Mountain Apple tree, Syzygium malaccense, while Lehua derives from Proto-Central Eastern Polynesian *refua, the name of a star, perhaps Antares.
The Malay Apple tree has red flowers similar to those of Metrosideros species, and Antares is a bright red star.
