Maori Names

Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand, and their names are an exotic discovery to most. Many sound beautiful and have interesting and evocative meanings, which is why they're sought after by parents. Popular Maori names were Maia (for girls) and Nikau (for boys), but we've got plenty more than that! For parents who like to get creative and think outside the box, Maori baby names are a great place to start. Check out our selection of fine Maori baby names, all with gender and pronunciation, meaning, popularity info, notable namesakes and pop culture references.
