May 29 - It's Friday. What does that mean on The Sims forums? Time to highlight some awesim discussions!

101+ Mermaid Names for Your Aquatic Sims

«1
8529863695_4ea6fb86b1_z.jpg

Over 224 names!

Fun Fact: I love names. I’ve have several lists I’ve been collecting since I was twelve. I also like the Sims, and with the Sims I like having themed legacies, and with those themed legacies, I like to have names to match the theme, thus those name lists come in handy. I thought I’d pass that handiness onto you.

This particular collection of names is a modified list I made for the Sims 2 for the Mermaids (which are the confirmed Lifestate/Creature) that are coming with the Island Paradise (*squeals with delight*), but they work well for pirates, surfers, beach comber, beach bu ms, people living by the sea, people who like the sea, people who swam in a lake that one time when they were seven, people who like pretty names; anyone, really. They just happen to be all water/ocean related because, obviously, Mermaids would have human names that are sea related. Amiright people?

I am. There is no doubt.

Note

These names are all aquatic themed, that is, no Ariels (as Ariel meanings “lion of god”) nor Ursulas (“little she-bear”) or even Madisons (whatever THAT means). I’m debating on whether or not to include blue and green names (sea colors), island names, and sand names but all names are just water or sea related: No rivers, lakes, creeks, etc.

Since this is a forum, you may comment or even add names to the lists (after my approval), or ask questions about the names or names in general. If you are contributing names, make sure that you include meanings and origins, especially in a long list; no need for gender.

If I have the wrong meaning or any other inaccuracies, please tell me. I don’t mind.

Need Help Finding a Name?

All names are in alphabetical order. If you want to find a name with a specific meaning, a specific name, or a specific origin, try using the “Find” option (usually located in the menu in most web browsers).

The 6 most common name meanings listed are:

Sea, water, pearl, wave, ocean, fish

Origins of names (listed loosely in order of amount) include:

English, Greek, Latin, Hawaiian, Welsh, Irish, Hebrew, French, Gaelic, German, Chinese, Spanish, Egyptian, Scottish, Finnish, Celtic, Babylonian, Vietnamese, Russian, Italian, Hindi, Basque, Arabian, Turkish, Persian, Nahuatl, Miwok, Japanese, Chamoru, Arabic, Yiddish, Ugaritic, Swahili, Slavic, Scandinavian, Portuguese, Hungarian, Danish, Cornish, Assyrian, Armenian, Albanian, Winnebago, Swedish, Sumerian, Serbian, Sanskrit, Norwegian, Ganda, Hopi, Breton, Kikuyu, Polish, Slovene, Dutch, Brazilian, Sumerian, Sioux, Manx, Swiss, Roman, Pakistani, Norse, Puyallup, Native American, Choctaw, Akkadian, Chaldean

Some of the longer lists of name have been broken up. Names listed with an equal sign (“=”) are continued lists of the last tilde (“~”) name.

Coming Soon: Subcategories! Including Just Water Names, Actual Mermaid Names That Have Nothing to Do with Water, Just Island Names, Just Sea (Related) Animals, and more!

(Please note: Not all names have all origins listed; for instance, “Marie” is an English, Hebrew, French, AND Swedish spelling, while there may only be English, Hebrew, and French listed because of human error and laziness.)

    I’ll have to double check some of your names since I know Lorelei is German for “murmuring rock” (she was named that because she sang as she sat upon a rock by a river) and Laraine is another spelling for “Loraine” which means “laurel”, but you list looks pretty good. I actually already have “Sirena” on the list already, but as the order of aquatic mammals that include dugongs and manatees, mostly because sirens are traditionally half-bird rather than half-fish. (I got "Sirena" out of Encarta, so I‘m just going by their definition.)

    I really wanted to include Lorelei on the list, but for now, it’s all just sea-related or water meanings, even though she’s an “actual” mermaid. Even my founder for my legacy, which I created intent for MerSims, was named “Lorelei”. (She wasn’t a Singer, though, since I don’t have Showtime.)

    However I’ll credit you on the list with Lorelei when I decide to put non-water related names in (which will be under the section “Actual Mermaid Names That Have Nothing to Do with Water”) . I’m not sure when that will be. Hopefully I’ll be able to find or have some Simmers suggest some more water names before that.

    Thank you very much for your suggestions! :D Hopefully I'll have enough names to update by Saturday/Sunday, though I may update before then. The list is really badly formatted. :/

    EDIT: Ah, it seems that Laraine IS Latin for "sea gull" while at the same time a Latin alternative spelling of Loraine ("laurel" ). Pardon me. This is why I always double check name meanings! Some names can have two meanings while having the same origin and pronunciation, and that gets confusing. ><

    I'll be adding it to the list then! :D

    Here’s the actual link:

    http://www.thesims3.com/contentDetail.html?contentId=351116

    If you have a different browser, try copying it into the address bar, though sometimes just refreshing the address repeatedly works for me. If your still having trouble it’s probably the website itself. It’s really buggy. You shouldn’t worry, though, you’re not missing much. :lol:

    And you’re welcome! ^^

    Kaia is a great name! But I’d have to say my favorite so far is “Marjani”. Close second is “Sango” (if only because I used to really like Inuyasha :oops: :lol: ).

    I’m happy I helped you find a name. :)

    Create new family.

    Surname: Maid
    Forename: Mer

    Full name: Mer Maid. (Mermaid)

    Mind = blown.
    Mer Maid can be married to Man Maid and have a French Maid for a daughter, and she can marry Milk Maid and adopt Hand Maid, who will marry Odd Job (but keep her maiden name) and make custom dolls for a living.

    Thanks! I actually missed Doris (as it’s another spelling of Dorian).

    Ianthe, however, actually means “violet flower”, and while she was a sea nymph, the name won’t be on the list quite yet. Ianthe will be under "Actual Mermaid Names That Have Nothing to Do with Water" whenever I put that subcategory up.

    Thanks for the name! And I'm happy to know you'll use the list! ^^

    That movie was alright. I liked her starfish earrings.

    Half of me wants MerSims in CAS but the other half wants them to be uber special, like Aliens and PlantSims. I just hope they’re interesting looking, have lots of variation, and have great game play. And can have babies with Sims so this list is worth it. XD

    @worldlastnames First, this thread is old and will be closed for necroposting aka bringing back old threads.
    Second, your quote is SUPER long. Keep in mind you can use the "[ spoiler ]" and " [ /spoiler ] " code to hide long quotes.

    Thank you for bringing back this thread though and linking those websites as I'm working on a list of Sim name ideas for my blog!

    @lisasc360 Oops! Didn't know that. The long text is just annoying though.

    Thanks for unlocking. Even though it's old, it's such a great resource! Especially with the new mermaid world over on MTS.
