Names For A New Age

As I write Petra Kitova is playing a Frenchwoman called Oceane Dodin.

What a beautiful name that is: Oceane.

I love it how names taken from Nature are beginning to chase out the weary old Christian saints. New names for a new age. Adieu Marie-Therese, bonjour Oceane...

If I were still in the business of naming babies I'd be going that route.

In related news I see that Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara have called their son River- which is brilliant in this way, but also in that.
