Tawa Flat, near Porirua north of Wellington, was a borough for many years, then simplified its name to "Tawa" after subdivisions started climbing the hills. "Lynn of Tawa" was a fictional person played by Ginette McDonald, not well received by all listeners in Tawa.

The area became part of Wellington City in 1989 and soon produced a Mayor for the city.
