    Love it. I've always said it Oh-see-ANNE. Not sure that's correct.

    Thanks for the support everyone! It's our new favourite over Willow Grey and Willow Goldie. I think I still like the normal Ocean even though it's more gender neutral.

    I love Océane. In French it is pronounced like oh-say-on. The accent aigu over the (é) in French is always pronounced like ay, rhymes with say, bay, may. Not to say that you couldn't pronounce it differently in English, but the name with that accent mark should not be pronounced with an -ee sound.

    On an American girl, I would assume Oceane would be pronounced like oh-shee-ann or just like the word, oh-shin/shen. It's nice, and I much prefer it over your other choice, Willow! I think I like just Ocean as well now that you mention it. Not only does it simplify the pronunciation, it definitely is gender neutral because it is a nature name.

    I would pronounce it oh-shee-ahn. I like it, but I think it looks prettier than it sounds.

    This. I suck at writing pronunciation, but I think I pronounce it closer to Oh-say-ahn.
