Island names 'not official'
By REBECCA PALMER

...... and also wants to make their English names official.



so if the NZ Geographical Board wants to make the English names official WHAT have they been recorded as for the last 160 years ?

surely if no name is official what other names up and down the country arent Official ?

seem this Board is making excuses every time a name of a town or city is spoken about ...

last week it was Wanganui ....

if you are asking me i think someone is pushing the name everything maori a bit too far ...

dont see the USA getting a name change after some Apache Cherokee Indian or England being called Bretannic, Albion and Ierna as was the situ in times of Aristotle (c. 384322 BC ...
