The name of this mountain began with Te Heru who was a sister to the chief Taramainuku who lived in Mangakahia. She summoned her brother to go to the foot of the mountain to cut down a large tree to lay claim to the land. As the tree fell to the earth Te Heru named the mountain Tutamoe. Enei nga korero i roto o te Maramataka 2007 na Sam Rerekura.
