Cyriarista could work, but it's a little awkward to say/read.
If you're looking for different, try looking up the words "sea" and "ocean" in different languages. You might find one of them that you could change around the spelling of to make it feel older.
Alternatively, you could search on baby name sites using words like ocean, sea, water, or whatever, and look at all the name possibilities. You can always change the spellings or whatever, and just use the names as a sort of jumping off place.
