Hey there, so I am writing a story about three sisters who become sirens. Only thing is, I don't have any ideas for names. They are triplets with jet-black hair and icy blue eyes. The last name is Rivers. 

Thanks!

Hey there! Welcome to BNG!
Well, Ocean, Nautica or Marina are quite obvious choices. But less obvious ones are:

Aeronwy
Combination of Aeron, and the suffix wy meaning "river". (Welsh)

Asherah
derived from Semitic roots meaning "she who walks in the sea"...

Manami
From Japanese 愛 (mana) "love, affection" combined with 美 (mi) "beautiful" or 海 (mi) "sea, ocean".

Maris
Means "of the sea", taken from the Latin title of the Virgin Mary stella maris, meaning "star of the sea

Maya
Derived from Hebrew מַיִם (mayim) "water".

Meri
Means "the sea" in Finnish.

Neith
Greek form of Egyptian Nit, meaning "water"...

Nereida
Derived from Greek Νηρειδες (Nereides) meaning "nymphs, sea sprites", ultimately derived from the name of the Greek sea god NEREUS, who supposedly fathered them.

Tiamat
Means "sea" in Akkadian...

Kaita
Japanese for Child of the Ocean

Kai
Means Sea

Mira
Means ocean

Youko
"Ocean Child"

Adva
"Little Wave"

Hope these helped!

Haifeng (in Chinese characters 海风)means ocean wind.
Ula-sea jewel
Melusine-water spirit from French legend, the house of burgundy is said to have her as an ancestress.
Morgan or Morganna-sea dweller
Marilla- shining sea
Ëarwen-sea maiden in Quenya (Tolkien elvish dialect) though I don't know if that will cause copyright problems
Ëar means sea in Quenya so you can google elvish dictionary and find things to pair it with (this is a bit time consuming)
Morwen is an old welsh name that could mean white sea or maiden. Ambiguity on name meaning can add a certain mystery to a character.
