Kia Ora whanau!!!!!

Is there anyone who knows the meaning to the name "Te Waimatao"? My baby brother is expecting his first child and would like to name the child Te Waimatao. My brother lives in Australia and has heard the name Te Waimatao and thinks it "sounds" beautiful, however he doesn't know the meaning and neither do I.

It would be really appreciated if anyone could help with either the meaning or the origin of the name.
