Good boat names

I just happened to notice one of the pictures on the sailnet collection had a freighter out of Hong Kong with the name "Titan Uranus" jotted across her stern. Anway, I thought it was good for a laugh...

tenuki will become famous soon enough
I think that would fall under the general category of "Monty Pythonish Names" (after that scene from life of brian).

I showed that picture to my class of students, and of course, got a good laugh. But I have 2 ESL students from China and they didn't see the joke.

That ship was probably named in the Orient and they likely never gave it a second thought, just thought they had a good godly name!

I'd guess it was some Brit who wanted to see if he could slap one past the goalie. Apparently he did...

I always wanted to name a sailboat "Passing Wind" but never had the guts to do it.

Here's an amazing stat. I recently read that the FIFTH most common name for a boat in the U.S. is "Wet Dream." The MOST common name is "Serenity." Unfortunately, that is the name my boat was given by the previous owner, and I'm too lazy to do anything about it.
