Atutahi

1. (personal noun) Canopus - the second brightest star in the sky, also called Aotahi and Autahi. According to some, Atutahi was the child of the stars Puanga (Rigel) and Takurua (Sirius).

Tākina mai rā ngā huihui o Matariki, Puanga, Tautoru, ka ngaro a Atutahi māna e whakarewa te tini whetū riki ka rewa kei runga (TJ 11/5/1899:4). / The constellations of the Pleiades, Rigel, Orion rise and Canopus disappears and elevates the many small stars suspended above.
