Maka = Toss,cast, with the ia on the end of maka it has become a kupu hangu, which in english is knowen as a passive verb, more or less the actor becomes in a passive state an the focus is on the action being perfomed rather than who is doin the casting - makaia = cast, toss
my 5 cents worth lol

Yeah, 'cast out' is probably how I'd render it...anyhow, I'll take a squiz through my bible, maybe its a Bible name (one of those not so well known ones?)

Hey thank you for all the replies! To cast out seems to be the the one but I'll be watching to see if she grows to be a shy girl Kina. I guess the act of being born could be seen as being cast out as well.

Tena koe e Kaiser
Nga mihi matakuikui ki a koe me te mapihi pounamu nei a Makaia. Ehara i te mea he whakaiti enei kupu, me penei ke, ko nga takarepatanga maa te reo e kawhakina ana e nga whakaaro whakakake.
Ina he maori te tirohanga, te ruku i te hohonutanga o te kupu ka kitea he maramatanga. Kahore i kotahi te whakamarama o nga kupu maori nei. Taku kupu: whakamaua ki te pu o te kupu.
Ma - pure, understanding, kai - sustenance, knowledge, ia - her
Kia whakahoroa ma te whakatauki. "Ahakoa he iti he iti mapihi pounamu." All though she is small, she is a treasure".

He wewete kupu noa tera, kia whakawehea pera rawa i te kupu tera pea ka ngaro hoki te ia, o te whakaaro e hiahia nei na te tangata whakahau kupu na.
Kihai ahau i te whakaiti, heoi, ko taku nei, ae e tika ana koe kia kimi i te ngako o te kupu, engari ma te rerenga korero ke ka mohio he aha te tera e whakahua nei

Thankyou for your contribution Te Whareparaoa, I didn't even think to look deeply like that - I don't think Makaia would be an ingoa whakaiti....
hmmm....thinking quite hard over this....
