Maori Place Names
(EPUB ebook – 4th edition)
Pronounce and understand Maori place names with the fourth edition of A.W. Reed's classic guide to meanings and origins of names across New Zealand. From Ahaura to Whitianga, this handily sized book is the definitive guide to the most common and notable Maori names on our land.
...Why do Whangarei, Tauranga, Motueka and Timaru have the names they do? Why all the fuss about the spelling of Whanganui and Rimutaka? What are the original names for Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin? Maori Place Names gives concise and clear answers, as well as taking in curiosities like the world's longest place name.
Maori Place Names includes maps showing principal names, and also reproduces the illustrations from the original 1950 edition by renowned artist James Berry.
