Previously known as Lake Ototoa, its name was changed in 2013. Rototoa translates as 'Lake of the Warrior', and is part of a line of lakes known as 'the Footsteps of Kawharu' after the warrior Kawharu who fought with the Ngati Whatua tribe against the resident Waiohua, Ngaririki and Kawerau tribes in the late 17th to early 18th centuries.
