Gender: F Meaning of Thalassa: "the sea" Origin of Thalassa: Greek

A pretty, rarely used Greek name, Thalassa is the ancient personification of the sea, particularly the Mediterranean, who is sometimes considered the mother of Aphrodite. In 1991, a newly discovered moon of Neptune was dubbed Thalassa.

This name would make a highly original, yet accessible and delicate choice.
