Since I'm in the market for a boat (my first!), I've been thinking of names lately too. I'm not superstitious about keeping a vessel name the same, so if the boat I buy has a silly name, I will be changing it. My criteria are:

Original - I don't want my boat named the same thing as 100 other boats. It needs to be unique and personal. I'm a music lover, so maybe a reference to a rock 'n' roll theme or song or something. Call me a dork if you will.

Short - If, and when, I have to spell my vessel name phonetically, I don't want to spend too much time messing around with a 20 character boat name. This is difficult since I have come up with a couple good names, but I think they're a bit long.

Hmmm, I guess that's a pretty short list of criteria. I think maybe when I finalize the purchase of a boat, a name will jump out at me. Now, I just have to buy a boat!
