    Looking for a California or Coastal inspired GIRL’s name to honor where DH and I first met (California’s Central Coast)

    I think Callie is the obvious choice, but maybe too direct. You could use the name of the actual place you met, for example, if you met on the coast near San Francisco, that would most likely be the Gulf of the Farallones and you could call her Farrah. Something like that. Maybe you can identify some Flora or fauna you saw while you were there. You likely saw a sanderling or willet that, while not traditional names, sound nameish enough and come with cute nicknames.

    I'm a little baffled by how few ocean/beachy names there are, but perhaps:

    Gal / Galia
    Marilla
    Marina
    Muriel
    Nerina / Nerida
    Oceane
    Ondine
    Pelagia

    You could also use a name meaning peace to tie in with the Pacific.

    Frida
    Irene
    Mira (also means sea in Sanskrit)
    Pacifica
    Pax
    Paz

    This one is a bit tricky. Is there a particular area you met in or beaches you went to that you could draw inspiration from?
    The first names I thought of were:
    -Sierra (more about the mountains, but still about California)
    -Poppy (the state flower)
