Comments for OCEAN:

This name is a really pretty name.

I think this name is a little too unique to give to your child. It is kind of embarrassing to have a word as a name.

I personally like the name Ocean, but not its original English pronunciation. I would rather go with O-kian, or better yet, Akiana. Simply pulchritudinous (pretty)!

Beautiful name, beautiful imagery.

I like this name a lot, but I wouldn't like this name for myself.

I know a kid named Seas. Maybe they'll start naming kids Lake or Bay. Why not?

I have a niece with this name. At first we thought it was a little odd, but still much better than my brother's first choice for her name. And now that she's older it fits her beautifully. With a good middle name, it's great.

I love this name for a boy. It sounds very imaginative and playful!

A good middle name. :)

This really is a beautiful name, but I wouldn't consider it for my future children. I still think it's amazing!

The famous actor Forest Whitaker's son is named Ocean Alexander.

I know a girl named Oceania, which I think is better than just Ocean. It seems more like a name, instead of just a word.

It's quite a cute idea to use the name, but in practice, it might sound quite tacky. This would be better as a middle name, as it sounds quite hippie-ish.

I don't see a kid wanting to be named after the ocean-literally. I personally draw the line at Brooke, Violet and Pheonix or maybe even a spin on the actual word. It's like naming a kid Water. Or Wave. Come on, seriously?

Well, I think this is a really nice name and it actually has a meaning that people can understand (Ocean means what 70% of this planet is made of) instead of some name like Katie or Bobby, I mean, I absolutely love this name and it (in my opinion) sounds great for a girl.

American author John Robbins ("Diet for a New America") has a son named Ocean.

British artist Tony Mortimer who was a member of the boy band "East 17" does have a daughter named Ocean.

I've seen this name spelled Oshun which I don't care for.

God, was the kid that fat that you had to go and name him/her "Ocean"? Geez, think of the kid; that's just plain insulting.
-- GunsnRoses8794  11/24/2008
I don't quite understand your comment about "the kid was that fat you had to name it Ocean". I don't think the name Ocean has anything to do with size - instead, it reminds me of strength, beauty and power, yet also serenity and peace. I would definitely use this as a middle name!

My best friend's girlfriend is named Ocean. She is so beautiful and so her name really adds on to her beauty. It's very majestic and a peaceful name.

I think it's cool for a guy because you could call him Sean.
-- avalongiselle101  8/1/2009
Extremely pathetic and trashy as a name.
-- bananarama  8/2/2009
I like it, but for a middle name. Not for a first name though. It's pretty and unique.
-- italiannames  8/20/2009
The word sounds nice, but it's hopelessly tacky as a name.
-- Athena Nike  3/8/2010
A great name but as a middle name only. It sounds too weird to be a first name.
-- CattyLoony  4/9/2010
I see this as a boys name, as my friend's boyfriend is called this.
-- Anonymous User  4/21/2010
For me, Ocean is completely feminine. That said, I still feel like (as a name) it's incomplete. I much prefer Oceana.
-- erb816  11/14/2010
It would be far too easy to tease a child named Ocean who went through a chubby phase. 'She takes up most of the planet!'
-- vomiting  12/30/2010
I agree with the above user. It does have a sharp downside, but it also has a beauty about it. Still, too many teases could be made out of it.

Kids will make fun no matter what name you give them. My name is Thierry (terry in english) and they called me terry blossom after the snack "cherry blossom" #$%? Makes no sense I know?

That being said, Ocean would be my first and only choice for a girls name. Simply Ocean is awesome.

My daughter was born in 2003 and her name is Ocean Alyssa. And yes, I am a slight "hippie" (and a Pisces). I was looking for a name with meaning (the Ocean is abundant and the most powerful force on Earth) but also a name that would be easy to pronounce. When I chose this name, I did not know of any other person with the name. Me nor my daughter have ever gotten anything but positive feedback on her name. Children do not make fun of her; instead, they love the name. I did take into account how cruel children can be (if she were to ever have a weight problem, "she's as big as the Ocean" or whatever kids come up with...) that's why I gave her a "normal" middle name. She loves her name and it is very fitting for her personality. She is gorgeous and intelligent and very unique. Her name has not affected her in a negative way whatsoever.
