Naming the baby

Iona Kapuna: Names after an ancestor. They would have this type of name to pay respect or in hope to be similar to their deceased Ancestor.

Iona Po: Night name the name is given by the gods and/or in dreams from a family member. It is believed if the child is not named what the gods have chosen, the baby will become ill and possibly die.
