Choosing a Maori Name for Your Baby
Having a baby? Finding it hard to choose a name? Even if you are a non-Maori, this could be a vital book for you to look through. The book provides transliteration of English names to Maori ( e.g. April is Aperira in Maori), as well as a guide to traditional names such as Titi, which means a ray of light. Translations are given for every name, and the book is divided into boys and girls names, translating from Maori to English and from English to Maori. There is also a short pronunciation guide, so you can be sure of pronouncing the name correctly. A valuable book, giving you more options in the search for just the right name for your baby.
