I see this as a masculine name, since Ōkeanós, the Greek titan of the seas, was a dude.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I really like this name (for both genders). It sounds similar to Oisin/Ossian and Oceana/Oceane as well as being in a similar vein as River/Lake/Brook etc so it feels familiar, but is actually really uncommon.
