I too believe in keeping the original name. I can do that now because my new boat has a cool name that I like (Oceana) and it has always had the same name since 1938 AND it's welded onto the transom in big block letters.
I'm pretty sure it's written in ink in Poseidon's ledger.
My last boat had a stupid name. And it had already been changed before I got it. So in that case, I pretty much HAD to change it because you never know if it was done correctly, and.... well it was stupid so duh!
