Kia ora. Greetings. Would some kind person please translate the meaning of my son's name - Matthew - please. In English it means "a gift from God".

My sincere thanks.
Evelyn

Kia ora Aonghus (thank you Aonghus). If you check this again, can you help me with the pronunciation - I'm sure people are going to ask me how to say it. Neither myself nor mine are of Irish descent but my son lived and died in Ireland, and like him I too visited and fell in love with the country and her people.
God bless.

Evelyn,

Hi, and may I offer my condolences. An approximate phonetic pronunciation (taking into account the Kiwi accent) might be "bronn-ton-us oh yee-a".
Hope this makes sense.

Le meas,
Fintan
