Jacinda Ardern’s baby

Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s Prime Minister, has named her baby girl after a town. The baby, whose full name is Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford, has her second name taken from the mountain and small rural town of Te Aroha, which means "love" in the Te Reo Māori language. Jacinda Ardern, who grew up in a nearby town, under Mount Te Aroha, said: "It was our way of reflecting the amount of love that this baby has been shown before she even arrived". Locals were ecstatic at this announcement, saying that this name has put their town on the map. They also invited the Prime Minister to take part in the traditional Māori ceremony of burying the afterbirth in the earth of Te Aroha.
