300+ Baby Names Inspired by the Ocean and Other Types of Water

Updated on December 9, 2019

I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

Names associated with water or the ocean has always held a special place in my heart. I have a very good friend that lives with his family out in California which I visit fairly often. The entire family live their lives around the ocean and have names inspired by it. I visit at least once a year and look forward to each and every stay.

The name suggestions below were inspired (at least partly) by those trips and include a variety of sea-related terms, including everything from nautical slang and ocean trenches to saltwater animals and plants to underwater ridges and ocean-related words in other languages. While I have included the meanings and origins of some names, most don't have any explanations. I thought about putting origins for every name (e.g., Tiger comes from tiger shark), but I thought it would take away from the article. I hope you find my list of names useful. Thanks.

There's nothing more humbling than letting the sound of the ocean put you to sleep. It's like a gentle lullaby by a caring mother. You'll always remember it.

My Ancestor's Sea Name

My grandma used to tell me stories about our family heritage. One in particular was about my great, great, great grandpa whose first name was Ocean. It turns out that if it were not for him saving a damsel in distress, I would have never been born. Unsung heroes who are never in any newspapers or TV shows are all around us and have been all through the ages.

I often wonder if we'll ever really have the chance to explore the biggest half of our planet. It will probably depend on humanity being able to make submarines that can actually travel to the depths. I think we'll find things that will change our planet, whether it be for better or worse.

To Sea or Not to Sea?

If it were possible, would you ever want to actually live in the ocean all the time?

      I do admit that the name doesn't stand out at the moment, but there are plenty of names that aren't that popular at first, but become popular through the years. I always assume that most of the "more unique" first names come out of love or from an interesting experience during pregnancy, and while some children might be ashamed of them at first, they grow to be very proud of the name given to them by their parents.

      On my opinion, all of these names are wonderful. I think that Wet is a good name for a child born into an ocean-loving family. Also, stop teasing the author for their names, because I don't think any of us could find as many names as Don did, and they're all unique and great. Thank you, Don!

      I admit that I don't know anyone using "Wet" as a first name, but I do know someone named "Booby". The story he told me about how he got his name goes like this:

      His mother died during childbirth and her dying words was naming her new baby boy. Nobody knows whether it was a mistake, but everyone present understood her to say "Booby". He's in his sixties and hasn't ever considered changing it, and I'm proud to know him.

      Oh, by the way (I forgot), I do know someone who knew someone called "Wet".

      A few months before I wrote the article, I was helping my cousin look for a name for her baby that was due in a few months. She wanted something inspired by the ocean, but all we found was the same generic stuff. She wanted a unique and wonderful name that nobody else had. We eventually came up with a name on our own by looking in an old encyclopedia. I decided to write this article a little while later. Hope you found it useful.

      I actually know someone who knows someone whose 2nd Uncle was names Wet. In all fairness this was back in the early 1900s, but this name has been used before. Perhaps the parents wanted the child to grow up tough?

      I'm sorry but Wet is a horrible name for a child. Say I have a dirty mind but a woman would hear no end to her name being...sexual. It's too easy to tell her she's always wet. Even on a guy it's not good. I hope no one ever thinks it a good idea to use that as a name :x

      We decided to name our child after the ocean because it is strong, powerful, ancient and enduring. Peace be with you.

      "Cilia" was actually one of the first names I came up with for this article when thinking about the ocean. After looking up its meaning, I was not in any doubt that I wanted to use it. The ocean is "fat" as it covers more than 70% of our planet.

      Fury would be a wonderful name as long as the last name has a rapport with it. I don't think it's reaching at all.

      Grouper is an ocean-inspired name. A few years ago I went fishing for the Atlantic Goliath grouper.

      There are plenty of snails in the oceans and seas of the world.

      The name "Wet" is spot on, and the kid who has it will certainly be different. I don't necessarily agree that abuse would happen, though. Teasing and fun among friends perhaps, but times have changed quite a bit. There are plenty of well known people and stars with very unique names that can say they are who they are, in part, because of their first name.

      "Cilia: Was used as a nickname for a fat man in South Italy decades ago" - I like the name but what even is that obscure reason

      "Fury: Nothing is more violent than the sea" - That's just reaching

      "Grouper: I actually know two men with this name" - Again, I like the name, but... good for you?? I guess?? Aren't these supposed to be ocean-inspired

      "Turbo: Remember the movie about the snail that could move really fast?" - ??? What even is this, I know what the movie is but what does that have to do with the ocean

      "Wet: A bit spot on, but definitely a unique name" - Oh boy any kid with this name is going to get such abuse for it

      A lot of people may think a certain name is crazy, but there are lots of others who like names that are different or unique. For instance, I think "Rudder" would be a great name for a new baby boy, especially if paired with a last name that makes it even more interesting. Example: Rudder Thompson; sounds like a great name to me.

      Names change with the times. As little as 10 years ago some of the baby names used now would have seemed ridiculous. I'm willing to bet that if there is nobody in the entire world named Booby at the moment there will be within the next few years.

      How can any young person resist splashing around in the ocean if placed in it? (Especially if there is more than one person.)

      As for "Turbo", I chose it because of the cartoon movie. You can find snails near all bodies of water (sea snails anyone?).
