The top bit, where we all live should be called New Zealand.

The bits south of Wellington should be abandoned and staffed by brave people like those who do stints on Raoul Island. These selfless heroes would be tasked to supply New Zealand with Electricity and Oysters.

Who, in the global economy is going to want to speak some long strung out Maori name, not once but twice, when introducing our country at say the Olympic games, the Stock exchange, Business roundtables and etc, so forth?  No one will want to listen that long, and we will be cut off because of language difficulties.  tsmv.

What in god's name is wrong with Nth Island and Sth Island of Nz?  Go figure ... shrug.

I feel a certain sense of Deja-Vue here.  81% of residents want to retain Wanganui - but that means nothing to the wankers on that board.

I do have an idea that I should really refrain from putting forward in case someone in this government  sees it - Why not sell both islands to the highest bidder and let the new owners name them?

Its not the name of New Zealand they want to rename.  We have Aotearoa. 

Its names for both islands that can be added if people wish to use it.   

I have yet to hear NZ referred to as North Island or South Island at the Olympic Games.  They announce us as New Zealand.  Huh   Cheesy

True - Do you think that would influence the ShonKey government if this idea came to their attention though?

Maui fished up a dilemma


Chairman Don Grant said yesterday: "Interestingly, while researching this issue, we noted that `North Island' and `South Island' are actually not official names under our legislation, despite their long-term usage."



Yes and interestingly, while researching this subject, you have been noted as a first rate plonker.

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 ?

....


Official this and official that - not in legislation - its sickening.



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. 384–322 BC ...


There are as many names for USA and Britain as there are languages in the world and the same for New Zealand.  The Chinese map of the world has a few very foreign looking symbols to denote North and South Island and I dont see any amount of legislation or official this or that is going to make the slightest difference.  The Indonesians name New Zealand as Zelandia Baru - the Spanish as Nuova Zelanda etc so really the only perspective is one of your language and how you see the world.  If Maori names exist for both islands then theres no harm in them being acknowleged - I doubt anyones going to be criminalised for continuing to say North or South Island.

If people actually read what the NZ Geographic Board has said...it was.    That the Maori or  English names could be used or they could be used together.   I don't know what some people are so afraid of.   There was no talk of removing the words north or south.

The South Island was original called the Middle Island. I want it to be called Tangata Whenua Middle Island and let Rangiura (Stewart Island) to be also known as The South Island or Te Tonga Motu
