Aotearoa (Māori: [aɔˈtɛaɾɔa]), originally used in reference to the North Island of New Zealand, is now the most widely known and accepted Māori name for the entire country. It is often pronounced i/aʊtiəˈroʊ.ə/ by English speakers, and is becoming widespread in the bilingual names of national organisations and institutions. Since the 1990s it has been the custom to sing New Zealand's national anthem, "God Defend New Zealand", in both Māori and English,exposing the term Aotearoa to a wider audience.
