[name_u]Maxwell[/name_u] is our top contender for a future boy. It means “great stream”.

[name_u]Kai[/name_u] means sea in Hawaiian

These are all pretty direct and I’m not sure how uncommon you want them to be but here’s what I came up with:
[name_u]Ocean[/name_u]
[name_u]River[/name_u]
[name_u]Lake[/name_u]
[name_u]Coast[/name_u]
[name_u]Cove[/name_u]
[name_m]Rush[/name_m]
[name_m]Tide[/name_m]
[name_f]Delta[/name_f]
[name_u]Rain[/name_u]
Hail
[name_u]Hudson[/name_u]
[name_u]Porter[/name_u]
[name_m]Crew[/name_m] (reminds me of a ship’s crew)
[name_m]Fin[/name_m] (or any variation)

I love Oceano, [name_u]Azul[/name_u], [name_f]Mar[/name_f] (means sea) and [name_u]Rio[/name_u]!
