Which name do you prefer for baby girl or are they too out there? Met baby Ocean and loved the name even though had dismissed it previously when I read it in name book so perhaps works better when said out loud. Thoughts welcome.

Meant Ocean or Oceana!

CocktailQueen Mon 12-May-14 17:41:49

Oh dear. neither for me. Sorry!

oldiebutnctoday Mon 12-May-14 17:43:04

Sorry but both of them make me gohmm Oceana slightly less so maybe ..........

mrssmooth Mon 12-May-14 17:44:08

Erm.. neither of them make me think of a baby girl. A cruise ship, yes, but not a baby. [sorry]

I know a teenage ocean and sorry I think it's silly.

burgatroyd Mon 12-May-14 17:48:37

Do you mind me asking why its silly?

Oceana sounds like a Swimming pool complex, don't do it op..

onlywhenitsraininginmadrid Mon 12-May-14 17:56:43

Reminds me of the chain of nightclubs called Oceana.

What about Ophelia?

burgatroyd Mon 12-May-14 18:00:12

Not too sure about Ophelia, too tragic. However sound of Ophelia is beautiful. I like the sound of the word, oooo-shun, if that makes sense. Anything like Ophelia or Ocean?

I liked it when I was a teenager and East 17's Tony Mortimer named his daughter Ocean. Enough said I think.

For me its way too out there and not a word I would consider to be a name iyswim.

What about Oliva? smile

Sorry, it's a no from me too....

Can I ask why you like the name?

IsabellaRockerfeller Mon 12-May-14 18:18:55

No to both of them.

It's a sea or a cruise ship.

burgatroyd Mon 12-May-14 18:24:08

Its the sound chottie!

I have known three people with these names!

Oceana, to me, is preferable to Ocean, but is still the name of a cruise ship to me.

What about Coral? Slightly more mainstream!

Reminds me of the welsh name Osian but that's a boys name x sorry not helping x

catwithflowers Mon 12-May-14 18:27:51

Ophelia is lovely. Ocean or Oceana is a no from me I'm afraid, for all the reasons above.

Vijac Mon 12-May-14 18:30:48

Maybe Oceana (though Otis a dodgy nightclub) but really too out there even for my love of unusual names.

EvilTwins Mon 12-May-14 18:35:06

What about Oksana? DNeice has a friend called that.

Theas18 Mon 12-May-14 18:35:37

Do you mean Osian/Ossian?

Ocean is just ripe for name calling and just not nice " Ocean.........Wild and wet?" etc
