Nixie and Nix names?

I need names for my Nixies and Nixes!! They are the ocean…um…beings I guess…in my story. Basically we have the elves, who have 6 kin: Sunkin, Moonkin, Woodkin, Wildkin, Stormkin, and Riverkin, but just rivers and lakes, not ocean. So basically the elves of the ocean but not elves. :grin: now I confused myself. So basically, merman and mermaid names. So far I have:

[name_f]Nerissa[/name_f]
[name_f]Naia[/name_f]
[name_f]Naiad[/name_f]
[name_f]Aqua[/name_f]
[name_f]Ondine[/name_f]
[name_f]Ondina[/name_f]
[name_f]Oceana[/name_f]
[name_f]Pearl[/name_f]

[name_m]Alon[/name_m]
[name_f]Eldoris[/name_f]
[name_u]Kai[/name_u]

Thanks in advance!

What about [name_f]Callista[/name_f]?

Any more ideas?

[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] means ‘daughter of the sea’ so maybe that? :slight_smile:

Some Turkish word names:
[name_f]Derya[/name_f] (sea)
[name_m]Deniz[/name_m] (sea)
Duru (clear, to describe water)
Derin (deep)
Okyanus (ocean)
[name_f]Su[/name_f] (water)
[name_f]Derya[/name_f] would be nice.

You can go to NB’s advanced search and search names with meaning “sea” or something else. There’s a lot of beautiful names.
