Naming Service

We will assist and work collaboratively with you to create and develop a Te Reo Māori name for your organisation, or for specific teams/units of your organisation, or for specific events run by your organisation.

We will discuss with you the relevance and appropriateness of your intended use of te reo before we agree to undertake the work.
