Naming an old boat without a name

We bought a 77 Capital Yacht-Newport 28 today. As I was crawling all over it, I realized I didn't see a name anywhere. I asked the owner about that, and he said that when they got the boat 6 years ago it didn't have one, and all that time, they never decided on one.

I can't believe in 31 years the she was never named, so somewhere someone must have started a rename by removing the original and never replaced it. How does the superstition go in this case? Does whomever left her unnamed bear the brunt of the bad mojo? What should I do to keep it from coming to us?
