Here’s an idea I like: changing the name of Levin to its originally planned Taitoko.

The name Taitoko was chosen by Muaūpoko leader Te Keepa Te Rangihiwinui, who had drawn up plans for a bicultural town, before the land was obtained by the Crown … Levin was adopted by the Crown from the name already given to a new railway station operating on land donated by Te Rangihiwinui for the railway corridor. It was named for William Hort Levin, a Wellington-based director of the railway company.

It is unlikely that Levin ever visited the town.
