'''Christchurch''' (

The city was named by the Canterbury Association, which settled the surrounding province of Canterbury (Canterbury Province). The name of Christchurch was agreed on at the first meeting of the association on 27 March 1848. It was suggested by John Robert Godley, who had attended Christ Church, Oxford. Some early writers called the town ''Christ Church'', but it was recorded as ''Christchurch'' in the minutes of the management committee of the association. ''A History of Canterbury'', Vol. 1 – Sir James Hight & Straubel, C.R.; Canterbury Centennial Association and Whitcombe and Tombs, Christchurch 1957, Page 121 Christchurch became a city by Royal Charter on 31 July 1856, making it officially the oldest established city in New Zealand.

The river that flows through the centre of the city (its banks now largely forming an urban park) was named Avon (Avon River (Canterbury)) at the request of the pioneering Deans brothers to commemorate the Scottish Avon (River Avon (Falkirk)), which rises in the Ayrshire hills near what was their grandfathers' farm and flows into the Clyde.

The usual Māori (Māori language) name for Christchurch is '''Ōtautahi''' ("the place of Tautahi"). This was originally the name of a specific site by the Avon River near present-day Kilmore Street and the Christchurch Central Fire Station. The site was a seasonal dwelling of Ngāi Tahu chief Te Potiki Tautahi, whose main home was Port Levy on Banks Peninsula. The Ōtautahi name was adopted in the 1930s. Prior to that the Ngāi Tahu generally referred to the Christchurch area as Karaitiana, Ōtautahi (from the Christchurch City Library website) a transliteration of the English word Christian. The city's name is often abbreviated by New Zealanders to '''Chch'''. "Chch ready...", The Southland Times "...injured in Chch bus crash", The Star In New Zealand Sign Language, the city's name is the fingerspelled letter C (made by forming the hand into a C shape) signed twice, with the second to the right of the first, while mouthing "Christchurch".
