Saw this one long ago and always thought it was clever: "Emanon"

... it's "no name" spelled backwards.

There's a "famous" Cal21 named Nodrog. The original owners name was Gordon.

We just decided on a name for our S2. We are calling it Ezekiel 25:17. In reference to Sam Jackson's monologue from Pulp Fiction.

You know that Quentin Tarantino didn't exactly quote the bible, right? Knock yourself out, but most are going to think you are.

My V17 has a white deck/cabin over 1973 yellow hull. Wife said it looked like a cooked egg and suggested "Sunny Side Up" but white over yellow would mean she was turtle. "Over Easy" sounds like a boat name, and has stuck. The 14' aluminum crab boat has never had a name painted onto it, but it's either the "Crab Basket" (because it leaks like one) or the "Critter Gitter"

Yeah, we talked about that but all agreed that it was more importat that it means something to us. Those that do get it will smile when we pass. Those that don't, oh well.

That's true, the name is to be most meaningful to you. Nearly all will assume you are devout, without having any idea what passage in the bible that references. Most won't ask the presumed devout to explain it, for fear of getting into a conversation they don't want to be in.

On the other hand, the devout themselves may find it an open invitation to come chat....... . Good luck with that.

Right on. While not devout myself, I appreciate those that are and have that special something for themselves. As for those thinking so, my sailor vocabulary, and body full of tattoo's will surly keep them guessing.
