HELP!!! We cannot seem to agree on a name for our new little boy! We really would like to have a name that is something beachy because we love the ocean so much. Our older children have rather unusual names; our oldest, a boy, is named Alexei. Then our two girls are Ibis and Coral. So we'd kind of like to have another unusual name.

So far DH and I have come up with - but not been able to agree on:

Beacher (or Beecher) this is my current fave

Hobe (pronounced ho-be)

Surf - probably spelled Cerph - DH loves this but I'm not so sure

We already vetoed Sandy and Reed. I would love more ideas, or your opinions on these names. Thank you!

You could use the name of an acutal beach: Zuma, Cruz (Santa Cruz), Huntington (I know a little girl with this name, her dad was an avid surfer).

Cove
Coast
Current
Triton - water God
Fisk - means "fish"
Reef
Osiris - water God
Whelk - type of sea snail
Tide
Dune
Ronan - means "little seal"

There was a boy in Jordana's playroom named Ocean.

I also like the Triton suggestion. Good luck!

What about Laird? He's a surfer and I've always liked his name (Gabby Reese's husband).
