Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Kyrgyz, Russian, Serbian, Slovene and Ukrainian form of Okeanos.This given name is only in use in Bulgaria and Kyrgyzstan these days, where the name is unlikely to be given in honor of the Titan from Greek mythology. Instead, parents either bestow the name on their sons in honor of a 4th-century saint of the same name, or because they like nature names, since океан (okean) is the Bulgarian and Kyrgyz word for "ocean" (as it is also in most other Slavic languages).
