The Māori Language Commission is often asked about Māori place names. We have provided this map with some of the more commonly used place names.

For a more extensive list of names, click here. Please let us know of any Māori place names that you are accustomed to using.

Sometimes the best way to find a Māori place name for a local area is to visit a local marae and to ask local iwi.
