    Default Kiwi Names!

    Are there any Kiwi names? Like names that lots of
    New Zealanders have. Maybe traditional kiwi names?

    The most common New Zealand names vary from year to year but are fairly similar to many other English language countries. There is a link on this web site for the latest 100 most popular names:
    Browse for Stats in Population > Births - Statistics New Zealand

    Maori names would be distinctively New Zealand, but I haven't spotted any in the top 100 names.
    Some of the more common examples that spring to mind are:
    male:
    Rangi, (sky, air)
    Tama (boy, son)

    Female:
    Marama (moon, light)
    Aroha (love)
    Hine (girl)
