9789829801715: Tahitian Names for Babes - I'oa Tahiti

Tahitian Names for Babes: i'oa tahiti is an introduction to ma'ohi birthrites and name-giving in ancient and modern Tahiti.
Throughout the pages of this delightful book, you will find hundreds of beautiful names for boys and girls translated from Tahitian into English.
More than a baby name book, Tahitian Names for Babes: i'oa tahiti takes you through a cultural journey. Experience the beautiful words and sacred life of the ancients: age-old birth practices and methods of name choosing in ancient and modern Tahiti.
With guidance for pronunciation, and translations that reveal the poetry of the Tahitian language, the reader will learn many Tahitian words and gain much understanding.
Tahitian Names for Babes: i'oa tahiti groups names under such titles as flora, water, dreamings, life-love-joy-music, to name just a few, finishing with historical and legendary names, including a section dedicated to the Polynesians who left Tahiti's shores aboard the HMS Bounty - the author's ancestors.
