I was in a minor fender bender with a tree in a rental car. They misspelled my name on every document they sent me. Am I still liable to pay the damage? This happened in Hawaii but I live in California.

Your question is about the law of Hawaii, not California. But the answer is almost certainly yes. There's no good reason why a typo should excuse you from paying what you owe. The notices reached you and you know that you're the person they are referring to, so the typo hasn't had any impact. It would be unjust to make the rental company absorb the loss for such a trivial reason.
I am not familiar with the laws of Hawaii, but I would suggest that you give this to your insurance company. This is what you pay insurance for
