Education Minister Kay Hallahan has approved the name for a new school to open in Larsen Road, West Byford, in 1993.
Mrs Hallahan today announced the school would be known as Marri Grove Primary School.
She said Marri trees were common in the Byford area, prompting the idea for the name.
The Minister said Byford residents were invited to vote on three possible names in a survey conducted by the P&C of the new school.
More than 120 people voted with a majority favouring Marri Grove over alternatives Winterbrook and Winterbourne.
