Surfer Ocean vs. Beach Names

My hubby and I are like obsessed with the ocean/beach and we want to show that in our kids name. He is a pro surfer and I surf, but not competitively anymore. We love in CA and have a winter house in HI. We are pregnant with baby #1, but plan on having 3-6. We have made a list of ocean/beach/surfing related names. There’s a lot so I’ll post them in a comment below. Which ones do you like and have any other suggestions?

I like Dax, Dylan and Finn for boys. Alaia, Genevieve and Kealia for girls. I like Kai, Hurley, Zale, Laine as unisex names. Very creative guys!!

We dont like any of those, thanks though. We have looked at so much names that it would be more helpful to give us opinions on the lists we have.
Thanks so much!

I love Kai for a boy; Alaia for a girl. GL! (I live on the beach in Fl and these names are not common here so you’re in luck!)

I would stay away from brand names because if they surf that would be a bit weird.

Can I suggest modifications?

For example, instead of Coral (which is nice!) how about Coralie (which is a french name)? Or Marin turned Marina?
