mare, mari-, mar- +
(Latin: sea; ocean)
The motto of the Dominion of Canada; also meaning, "From sea to sea."
In fact, for both Canada and the United States, the "seas" are really oceans. Although the Romans had the word oceanus, which they borrowed from the Greek okeanos; in Homer, it was considered to be a river that surrounded the earth.
