10 Baby Boy Names Inspired By The Ocean

So you heard that you’re expecting a little boy and you’re almost literally over the moon. But choosing a name for him might be a little tougher than you thought it would be.

From kings and protectors to mysterious sea creatures, here are some ideas inspired by the ocean to name your son.

1. Douglas

Inspired by the dark, deep ocean, Douglas is a Scottish baby name that comes from the Gaelic ‘dubhglas’ meaning 'dark water', 'dark stream' or 'from the dark river'. The name is pronounced Dug-lihs and in Irish it means 'dark stranger'.

2. Earwyn

If you and your family love the sea, Earwyn, meaning 'friend of the sea', is just the name for your little one. It's usually pronounced as it looks: Ear-win, but you can also spell the name Erwin.

3. Lir

Pronounced Lee-r, this is a wonderful name for your little king. In Irish mythology, Lir was the god of the sea. His name suggests that he is a personification of the sea, not just a ruler of it.

4. Hurley

In Irish, Hurley means 'sea tide', which makes this name suitable for anyone loving the sea.

5. Murdoch

Even though you’ll be protecting your boy every possible moment, Murdoch means 'protector of the sea' in Scottish, or 'sea-man' and 'mariner' in Gaelic. It is usually pronounced Mur-dahk or Mur-dock.

6. Dylan

If you’re living at the sea or even near the sea, Dylan is a well suited name for your little one. Pronounced Dil-lun, in Welsh it means 'son of the wave' and 'born near the sea'.

7. Glan

Another great name for someone who lives near the sea. Glan means 'from the shore' in Welsh.

8. Hector

A Hector’s dolphin only grows to approximately 1.4m in length, making it one of the smallest aquatic mammals. Hector was also the name of a Trojan warrior in Greek Mythology. The perfect name for your little one.

9. Murray

Pronounced Mur-ee, Murray is another strong name for a boy. Murray means 'lord of the sea' in Irish, and is used both as a first name, and a surname.

10. Firth

Pronounced Fur-th, Firth means 'arm of the sea' in Gaelic, which is a description of a lake flowing out from the sea, like an inlet or sea loch.
