Let's talk about Oceana
Recently, I have fallen in love with the name Oceana. I can't decide what pronunciation I like best, but I think I like oh-she-ANNA and oh-she-AHNA equally well. I love how the name sounds strong but feminine, sturdy but light. Also, I like the nn option of Shea. I would appreciate feedback on what you all think of the name and what pronunciation you would use.
Also, I don't know if I will ever be brave enough to use Oceana as a first name, but I am trying to come up with combos using it as a first or middle. So far I have:
It is difficult because I tend to like nature and word names, which do not go very well with Oceana (besides Blythe, that is).
I think Claire Oceana or Oceana Claire would be nice, but Claire is unfortunately not an option for me for personal reasons. Any ideas for names that would work similarly?
Thank you in advance!Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

I like the oh-she-ahna pronunciation better. The name is beautiful, by the way.
Oceana Blythe rolls of the tongue nicely but are you fine with two word-y names? If so, it's a good combo.
Oceana Blair(instead of Claire)
Oceana Fay (I like the meaning - "ocean fairy")
And I really like how Oceana Joyce sounds but I am pretty sure I am the only person who likes Joyce.Olympia
