10 gorgeous summer-sounding baby names inspired by the sea

Summer is here (hooray!) and that means beach days, sandy feet, and glorious blue seas.

If you are spending the summer super-pregnant or are due these very (sunny) days, how about picking a name for your little bundle inspired by where we all want to be when the weather heats up – the beach.

Are you ready for some serious cuteness?

1. Ariel

Guys, we had to include our favourite mermaid!

2. Cali

I mean; what’s more beachy than California?! And we think this shortened version of the Golden State is a perfect summery girl name.

3. Coast

Cool and coastal for your little surfer.


4. Waverly

Inspired by the waves, of course.

5. Sandy

Cute and perfectly beachy!

6. Blue

Colour names are having a moment (Indigo, Olive, Jade...) and we think Blue is the perfect choice for a little summertime babe. (Also, Beyonce and Jay-Z chose it too, meaning this is a moniker with some serious street cred!)

7. Ray

Well, how great is this name for your favourite little ray of sunshine?!


8. Zale 

This Greek name means "sea strength".  We love that it’s unusual, but not hard to spell or pronounce.

9. Sailor 

Soooo cute for your little beach babe – and gaining in popularity. Kristin Cavallari (of Laguna Beach and The Hills fame) chose it for her daughter.

10. Hali

Greek for "sea", this name is gorgeous and one that transitions nicely from baby to adult.
