In the mid-19th century, Europeans, or Pākehā, were calling this bird the tui or parson bird, but by the early 20th century the name parson bird was largely discarded in favour of tui. This early spelling of tui reflects the English convention of the time, where long vowels in Māori were not shown by macrons.
