Thanx for that much appreciated.Point of clarification though- Does that mean Tamaiti and Tamaki have the same meaning? regards Joy

Greetings!No Tamaki and tamaiti do not have the
same meaning.So times there is a tendency that Maori names incorrectly pronouced are also incorrectly recorded.Do you have any other material to work on.
Blessings!

Im am trying to find the english translation (if there is one) for a specific individual who was known as Tamaki I note that the Hauraki Gulf has a stretch of water referred to as Tamaki and also there seems to be land referred to as the Tamaki Isthmus. This Tamaki came from the Umupuia ,Clevedon region of Auckland

If you refer back to posting on the 9th of this Month.You will find a little reference about Tamaki.
Good searching.

If you break it down this way, you'll find a different meaning again,

Tama = boy
Ki = To

Depends in how you use the word, it can be interpreted differently.
