I like Oceana why can't I find anyone that likes it dh hates it!
I can't remember if I mentioned it earlier on in the thread.
Arya was going to be DS1's name, if he had been a girl. My DH is a devout fan of the books. And he told me it was just a name he liked and came up with. I fought tooth and nail to have the spelling changed as Ah-ya just wasn't the pronunciation I liked and preferred Aria, which is how my DH was pronouncing it anyway.
It wasn't until the tv series came out, that I realized where he had got it from. If I had known Arya was who she was, I may of agreed to using it for DS2 if he had been a girl too. I also would of left the spelling right alone

Our other choice is a Gaelic name that Australians will struggle to pronounce and spell but we both love it. So perhaps a girl is doomed either way! Fingers crossed for a boy!!
I love the name Makkede for a girl, from the Tara Moss novels, but even I'm not sure how to pronounce it!
When I read the books I pronounce it Mac-ay-dee, but who really knows!!! I can only imagine how much it would be mispronounced and mispelt!
