You must be very new to sailing to be just now discovering such common superstitions.
I do belive someone is mistaken in thinking that a boats name is ever carved into the keel. There may be some truth to this explanation however, as the transom or bulwarks are still structural members and the old name would have to come off.
By the way, which nautical superstitions had you heard of before reading about whistling?
