Kiho

In Polynesian mythology, Kiho is the supreme god. His name can only be whispered. He consists of two parts: Tel lo Ora, the male, and Io Wahine, the female. He lives in Te Toi-o-nga-Ranga[?], the highest of the twelve heavenly underworlds. He created Marama. His attendants are called the Mareikura.

Alternative: Io ("core")
