    Oceana

    I recently came across this name and realized that I like it a lot! It has a very strong, mysterious, and beautiful sound. I'm just not sure if it is too far-fetched to work in real life. What do you Berries think of it? Also, it seems a nickname would be useful. What nickname would you use? Could Shea work?

    EDIT: I am also curious...do you pronounce it oh-she-anna or oh-she-ahna? Or maybe some completely different way?

    Thanks!

    I've wondered about this too... As far as nicknames go, I think you could go with Ocea? That's actually the reason I was interested in it, because I really like Ocea for some reason, but it seems a little abrupt for a full name. Shea is a nice nickname too.
    I do think it's a little unusual in real life, but I don't think anyone would be too alarmed by it.
    I'm not really sure about pronunciation.. I mostly only thought about the Ocea part, which was kind of like O-she-uh, but all in two syllables? Ocean without the N... I think I like oh-she-anna better, of the two you mentioned. Could you do oh-she-na? Or oh-shea-na? I'm not a huge fan of names that end in Anna, but if you did oh-she-anna that would also give you Anna as a nickname.

    @shalexis: Ocea is a cool nickname idea, thanks! I don't normally like names ending in Anna either, but this one just appeals to me for some reason.

    I'd say Oh-seh-AHNA actually. Nice name!
