Updated: April 10th, 2024

Maori language is an Eastern Polynesian language which is spoken by the Māori people, an integral population of New Zealand.

Maori baby names are incredibly popular as these names have beautiful sounds with evocative and interesting meanings. These names are not only used by the Aboriginals, but also by the urban settlers. Maori baby's first name is generally given at the time of birth which is influenced by events or circumstances. Earlier, Maori people do not use surnames but after the arrival of Pakeha, it is mandatory for them to use surname or family name which should be the father's name. For women, it is not mandatory to change their surnames after marriage.
