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!
-- elysa  3/14/2007
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.
-- ruth_truth  4/17/2008
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.
-- Nadia17  5/14/2009
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.

Excuse me. Please, do tell me how my name is 'tacky' or 'trashy'. I've read the comments and that is just plain god damn hurtful. My mum chose to name me that. That was her choice. If you'd just keep your comments to yourself, that'd be great. I know, I'm being 'rude' by telling you to keep your opinion to yourself, but you're probably just jealous. Jealous that your mum didn't think of naming you after such a beautiful thing. Next time think before you comment. People actually have the name.

Personally, I am going to name my daughter Ocean. I have had dreams for as far back as I can remember that I would have a girl and I always call out to her Ocean.
I am now pregnant and the doctors told me that ALL my pregnancy signs showed I was pregnant with a boy. But I knew the day after I conceived that I was pregnant and it was the girl I have dreamt of my whole life. As of a few days ago, the ultrasound confirmed it was a girl.
I am not a hippie, I am from a very wealthy family, heiress to a large corporation, and have my life together and my head on straight. So any comments about it being a hippie thing is absolutely inaccurate. I just know she is supposed to be named that and I think there is such a power, elegance and majestic quality to it in comparison to the daily norm such as the billions of people named Daisy, Bob, Lisa, Joe etc. Why should there be another Betty or Mark? Why is something unique and characteristically profound any worse than a name so overused, that this in itself can be considered unoriginal or tacky? There are two sides to any coin and I don't think a name should be judged or put down unless you dive into things like "Fungus" which 11 people in the United States actually used in 2011. Maybe to them that name was awesome, and who are we to judge but if people are going to worry about kids picking on another, I think names like "Bread" "Ipad" "Wifi" "Peanut" "Lucifer" "Whore" "Mafia" "Smelly" etc that are actually being banned would be something that we should be worried about. No one is trying to ban "Ocean".

Sounds chilly. I love it, especially as a feminine name.
-- Reenie_12  8/2/2014
Well, I myself think the name Ocean is a cool name, my name is Ocean after all.
-- oceansun  11/5/2014
My name's Ocean-china. People call me Ocean for short. I'm now 17 and I've never been picked on or bullied about my name, but I have had people make friendly jokes about my name and these are people who can't deny the fact that they either like or love my name. When I introduce myself to people the most common reply I get is "WOW that's a beautiful name" or "No way! That's really unique!" I can honestly say I've never had a bad comment made about my name. It's neither trashy nor tacky! It's exactly what it is described as in the dictionary and it's full of meaning. Just because of my name I've had great opportunities in life, because it's made me stand out that one bit more than others. I've been lucky enough to have a close friend name her daughter after myself, only she changed the double barrel to Ocean-deasia. I would recommend the name for a girl but it works very well for boys too. I LOVE MY NAME!

My name is Ocean and people always give me compliments and I love my name.People do make fun of my name, I don't care, it doesn't matter. Just be you and never give up.
