I love this name. It would also sound nice being pronounced as "O-shae-en".

One could argue that this is the 'Madison' or 'Taylor' of French girls name: highly common and often used.

It's so pretty. I absolutely adore the pronunciation, and it looks so pretty written out.

This is my name in French class. I chose it out of other more traditional French names, such as Sophie, Brigitte, and Isabelle, because of its uniqueness. The only downside is that I have been rather disliking its French pronunciation, "oh-say-AN"; I would much rather it to be pronounced just like "Ocean". Anyhow, I've been enjoying writing Oceane ___________ on my papers rather than my real name. ;)

Oceane is a fantastic name! I love it! I think I would pronounce it O-shay-an though.

This looks just corny as a name. I doubt it's a traditional French name, as I have never heard of a grown woman with this name. Why don't the French just use real French names instead of vocabulary words or non-French names?

What's wrong with French parents choosing non-French names? That's like saying that you can't call your daughter Leah if your aren't Jewish. It's hypocritical, considering how popular non-English names are in Anglophone countries. Breton names are actually very popular in France at the moment. It is a trend, but there's nothing wrong with it.

I really like this name. Océane sounds really different and unique. Even though it is very popular, it stands out from other French names. And it's really pretty sounding. Much nicer than the English Ocean. The pronunciation - o-say-AN - rolls off the tongue.

I like this name so much! It's so beautiful and better than Ocean!

Océane IS a French name. I don't know where I heard it, but when I did I thought "Hmm OH-SAY-AN, that sounds pretty". It might be common in France, but I love it.

It's a really pretty name! At first I really didn't like it, but now it's grown on me. It's very unique! I think it would be better if you were actually French, but if you like it go for it!
