Buffing with a compound rarely removes the ghost of the old name. The only thing I have found that will remove it is to wet sand the area with 600-1000 grit paper, then buff and then wax. You are not removing the name, you are bringing the exposed gel-coat closer to the gell that was under the vinyl decal. If you are lucky it's on the transom and you won't have to sand the entire side of the boat.
