We are both lovers of the sea and will be moving back to Cornwall soon. We are thinking about girls names with Cornish link or sea link. Though I'm also really fond of Xanthe which has no links to anything but I love it smile thoughts please on;

Elowen (I would pronounce El-OW- en
Lowenna
Lamorna
Rozenwyn
Morgelyn
Cordelia (Cordie)

Marnie (of the sea)- if the Hitchcock connection doesn't put you off.
Merryn - male saint but used for girls now.

Mar is popular in Spain where I live. It's a lovely name I think.

But Cordelia is my personal fave of your choices.

I love Elowen.

Kai - ocean
Maya - water
Maren - sea/of the sea
Misty
Morwen/Morwenna - waves of the sea (I think this is a Cornish name but I found a website that gives the meaning as waves of the sea. Really like this as it has a Cornish and sea link). www.babynames.biz/water-themed-baby-names.html

Mara, Scots Gaelic.

CakeRattleandRoll Sat 04-Feb-17 12:57:39

Love Elowen. Would have used it for DD, but put off by soooo many 'Ellie' type names, including DNiece. Really like Xanthe too.

Love Morwenna - it gives you both the Cornish link and the sea link.
Also:
Kerensa
Tegan (with short 'e' sound)
Meriel (bright sea)

Jennifer (white wave)

Cakingbad Sat 04-Feb-17 13:44:50

Elowen is lovely.

I like Mara too.

theconstantinoplegardener Sat 04-Feb-17 13:46:41

Delphine/Delphina? It means dolphin.
Marina
Samphire - a clifftop plant

CorporalNobbyNobbs Sat 04-Feb-17 13:53:39

Michelle.

I'll get my coat.

My vote goes to Whelk grin
I was going to suggest Ursula.
Iolanthe may have a sea meaning but you'd have to look it up in case I'm feeding you rubbish.
