Originally known as South Bay, the English government established a township here in 1674 called Christian Hook, basing the name on the predominant religious affiliation of colonists in the area. Land development proceeded rapidly, and oyster sales took their place as a dominant force, with the local business "Mott's Landing" becoming a favorite place to buy oysters.
In the nineteenth century, the town residents decided that "Oceanville" sounded better than "Christian Hook": it was "Oceanville Oysters" that sold, and in 1864, the new name became official. However, there was already an Oceanville in New York, so "Ocean Side," as two words, was adopted as the town's name in 1890. The name was condensed to "Oceanside" in 1918 - even though, geographically, the town, while a maritime community, does not actually front on the Atlantic Ocean, which is located several miles to the south. It is separated from the ocean by Reynolds Channel, the body of water just to the south of Oceanside, and beyond that, by Long Beach Barrier Island, including the eponymous city of Long Beach.
