Girl Names Inspired By The Ocean (With Matching Middle Names)

Karla Taylor is a writer who has a lot of fun with baby names.


Inspired By The Ocean?

With the ocean covering 70% of our planet, it's understandable that we'd find a deep connection with the waters of the ocean. Some more so than with the land beneath our feet. There are many reasons you might consider choosing an ocean inspired name for your baby, your own personal connection to the ocean being one example.

Perhaps your baby will be a water sign, Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces. If the ocean is a heavy presence in your lifestyle or if you'd really like it to be then that would be reason enough to consider an ocean inspired name but do you know what else is reason enough? Simply liking the name is reason enough.

People get wrapped up in name meanings, letters, syllables, all sorts of things. Myself being one of those people.

If you're just starting the journey of finding the perfect baby name then, firstly, I'd like to start by saying I feel your excitement. Isn't it great? I suggest getting a pen and a piece of paper, better yet - a little notebook and writing down every name you like and keep adding to the same list throughout the journey.


Write a copy of the list of baby names that you're considering so you can eliminate on the copy. Keep your original, big collection of names for when your children are expecting their own children.
