Generally agree on that but a friend had a good "wind" name on his boat. We were both from orchard country and he called it "Windfall" which is a term for apples blown off the trees. It also had the double entendre aspect of being purchased with winnings of some sort.

An uncle of mine named his "Moonshine" which also had the double meaning - very apropos in his case!
