They're the university's Maori name, which roughly translated means 'house of learning at the head of the fish of Maui' ' the Fish of Maui being the name for the North Island, and Wellington harbour being the fish's mouth. More here.

Maori is an official language in NZ, and has equal standing in state titles. You'll see most government departments and universities and the like have a Maori name under their English one on official documents.

They had it at the ceremony, which was pretty cool. It was interesting watching them try to spell some of the longer names in time for the people to cross the stage.

I was thinking it would be something like that since the language was so alien to anything I know.

The link is interesting, thank you! Do the Maori have any connection to "the other Hawaii" since they call their land of origin Hawaiiki, do you know? I think I need to look that up.

There are some similarities in language too. However, I think that genetically, Maori come from East Polynesia, and so do the folk of Hawai'i. So, they share a common heritage that diverged rather than one stemming from the other.

But I also believe there's a lot of debate around it, so don't take my word for it. ;-)

I think I might have heard a "go mum!" when you went up?

That is entirely possible. I didn't hear anything, I was too busy going "Don't fall on your face!"

It was pretty fun, although there were 264 BAs to cross the stage so long ceremony was long.

The idea of going back and continuing is alternately exhilarating and terrifying.
