Otorohanga for long stretch
The New Zealand Geographic Board wants to stretch out some well known names.
It's taking submisssions on proposed changes including whether the U in Manawatu should carry a macron, lengthening the final vowel sound, and whether the first O in Otorohanga should also carry a macron.
It also wants to alter the name of Bennydale, between Te Kuiti and Otorohanga, so it will be known as Te Maniaiti / Bennydale.
