Default Boat/Nautical boy names

So my wife and I found out we are expecting and this go round it’s a boy. Our daughter we named Keeleigh (keel of a boat keeps its centered and strong and my wife’s middle name is Leigh). We both like “different” names because we are both in education and have seen pretty much every common name you can think of and can associate it with some student we have had in the past. We are both water/boat/beach people so we want to relate the name to that somehow.

so far I like
Penn
Grady
Tide
Finn

any other ideas?

Sand
sandbar
sandy
horsepower
dock line
nav light
anchor

there is potentially hundreds. Probably none would be good to name a human. Although Finn has become popular

and im leaning towards horsepower

The definitive nautical/boating name.

Oisin is an Irish male name correctly pronounced Ocean (sometimes awshin)

You're welcome.

Spar isn't too bad either - for a blow-boater :-)

[color=left=#222222]"We both like “different” names because we are both in education and have seen pretty much every common name you can think of "

My wife is in education, she must teach different kids from you and your wife. She gets Fantayzea, Shawntell, Pelvis, Heven, My Princess (true), Jaybrawn, Boogie (true), Lawdasia', etc... She'd kill for a Timmy, Lisa, Michael or Mary.

Have you considered what "unique" names does for a person? Their name will invariably be misspelled or mispronounced most of their lives. People should think more about their kids having to live with a name rather than something you find unique. If none of that matters, I propose,

Kelp
Tarter Sauce
Cowling
Reel
Gaff
Teaser
Dredge
Rod[/color]
Bayliner (if you really hate the kid in sight)

AMEN! My dumba$$ daughter named and spelled all 4 Grandkids names with ridiculous spellings. We adopted all 4 and corrected the spelling so they could get through kindergarden knowing how to spell their names?

we teach in a title 1 school district (80-90% free and reduced lunch). I can assure you we have the off the wall names too. I get your point about the misspelling and Mispronunciation but that can happen with any name. My wife’s name is Dianna, she always has to tell people it hasn’t two n’s. Doesn’t really seem like it has held her back in life too much.

One thing I have learned in life is that it takes all kinds to make the world go round. If people want to name their kid Michael, Timothy, Jake, Philip etc more power to them doesn’t offend me. My wife and I want our kids to have uncommon names, I highly doubt they will hate us for it in the future. They will be too busy hating us for doing our job as parents to worry about their names haha

I know this name has been taken, and it's a well known but original name. He'll grow up to be a tough but cool dude. You may have to get him a pipe.
