Reef Or Maverick?

Alright my little man, kai is going to be a big brother but we don't know if it will be a boy or girl yet. I have two names I've chosen, for a sister I think Piper Oceana is fits so well. I picture kai and piper being a cute little sib set. For a brother I think reef poseidon, I just think kai and reef sound awesome together.  However I love the name maverick for a boy As well. So what do you guys think? maverick or reef? And do you think kai and piper or kai and reef/maverick are good name sets?

Piper and Kai do work well together. I'd use Maverick over Reef, as Reef just makes me think of marijuana.

I agree about Piper and Kai. I don't care for either Maverick or Reef. But, Reef doesn't make me think of marijuana - but Maverick makes me think of Sarah Palin.

I like the name Piper.  It's clear you love ocean names; have you considered Coral for a girl? 

The ocean name thing also makes me concerned about Maverick; it's not an ocean name at all, and I wonder if that would bother you.

Maverick is indeed a ocean name, it's a surfing term.

Piper and Kai are adorable together! Awesome names for a set of beach babies!

Personally I'm not a fan of either of the boys names. I like Maverick better of the two. While thematically Maverick and Kai go together, I don't love them together stylistically. Reef too easily becomes reefer, which is not an association I would want. 

Some other ideas for a boy:

Bodhi

Dax

Rider/Ryder

Jett

Laird
