Ocean names for girls – water, ocean, sea, beach and nautical themed names for your baby girl.
Choosing a baby name is one of the hardest, but most enjoyable parts of pregnancy (or new parenting – you can totally make the final decision on baby name after baby arrives.)
Your baby’s name is the first and lasting gift that you can bestow upon your child. Choosing a name that has association to you will help you make that ultimate decision.
If you have a strong connection with water, these names will definitely ‘float your boat’. :p
