新西兰女总理千金名字揭晓 寓意有爱有福又有光

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her partner Clarke Gayford have revealed the name of their baby girl, who was born Thursday.


Ardern is the first world leader in nearly 30 years to have a child while in office.


Emerging from Auckland City Hospital with their sleeping baby Sunday morning local time (Saturday evening ET), Ardern and Gayford told waiting media they had named her Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford.

365bet体育平台当地时间周日早上(美国东部时间周六晚上),阿德恩和盖福德带着熟睡中的婴儿从奥克兰市医院出来,他们对等待的媒体宣布,为女儿取名为妮薇·蒂阿洛哈·阿德恩·盖福德( Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford)。

365bet体育平台“Neve” (pronounced like leave) means radiant, light or snow and “Te Aroha” (TAY AH-row-ha) means love and is also the name of the mountain and town near where Ardern lived as a child.


365bet体育平台The baby will be known as Neve Gayford for short.


Ardern said like many parents she and Gayford had struggled to settle on a name before the birth and had a shortlist prepared.


365bet体育平台“We wanted to wait until the baby arrived to really see which one felt like it worked, we chose Neve because we just liked it and when we met her we thought she looked she suited the name,” the Prime Minister said.


However the couple chose “Te Aroha” quite quickly, as it reflected the love their baby had been shown before her birth, she said.


“All of the names that were gifted along the way, I thought how do I reflect the generosity, particularly from all the iwi (Maori tribes) who gifted us names and Te Aroha seemed to me to be a way we could show that love and generosity,” Ardern explained.


“It’s also the place where all my family are from as well as a place name and I grew up under that mountain.”


Gender equality


365bet体育平台Ardern is taking six weeks parental leave before Gayford — who hosts a fishing documentary series — takes on the role of stay-at-home dad.


“So I hope for little girls and boys that there’s a future where they can make choices about how they raise their family and what kind of career they have, that are just based on what they want and what makes them happy,” she said.
