Lola? No, I said Ocean.

No, don't like it sorry.

Dreadful I'm afraid

It's a girl's name. Seas are female.

I like Ocean.

I may be a freak though.

No no no no no.

I think Ocean is a fabulous name. Love it and if you do to, go for it!!

I quite like it
My nephew is Osian - a Welsh name pronounced Oshan - ( soft o)

I know a 4 year old Ocean.

He ends up being called Oshe by everyone.

Last time DH and I took him on a day out with our DS, DH asked me if he could rename him Ben for the day as he was finding the constant calling for "Ocean" a little embarrassing.

He's a lovely lad in spite of his affliction.

I know an Ocean and he's gorgeous! Tis a lovely name and it suits him well.

Good grief - no! Do you not know any small boys - they are merciless once they get in a playground.

Its OK.

As long as your surname is not 's Eleven,
's Twelve or 'Thirteen....

Pingpong Tue 09-Jun-09 22:51:35

I prefer Ossian but I wouldn't use it.
But if you like it then use it.
Depends on your surname
Ocean Smith sounds a bit hmmmm

Nice for a little boy, vile for a 45yr old man.

Think ahead!

Spidermama Tue 09-Jun-09 22:54:37

I think it's lovely.

I also know a really great teenager with the name so perhaps I'm biased.

I love the sound it makes. It's a beautiful word.

What's wrong with Sandpit or Swamp?

MollieO Tue 09-Jun-09 23:03:05

I'd start off with Paddling Pool and leave Ocean until he's a bit older - and after Olympic(swimming pool). grin

Too big and overwhelming. Pond would be better, I think

<I also think this is Lola>

Let me put it gently. Good god no!
