Foul Boat Names?

I have put off nameing my boat for far too long (over a year). I really need to register it and get a MMSI number and such. So, I have always wanted a boat named "The Filthy Whore" ever since I was a kid and saw the name in a movie. This is my chance but I don't know if the state will let me register the name. Any thoughts?

Why would you for one minute worry about whether the state will "let" you register the name or not? It's your friggin' boat, for God's sake. Put whatever name you want on the registration form (or none at all) and have "Filthy Whore" writ as large as you like on the transom. It's not like they're gonna come down to the marina to check.

Here are some work arounds:

The feminine of this, *hōrōn-, became hōre in Old English, the ancestor of Modern English whore.

Norwegian: hore, ludder
Slovak: prostitútka, pobehlica
Slovenian: kurba
Spanish: puta
Swedish: hora
Turkish: orospu, fahişe
Czech: děvka, kurva
Danish: hore
Estonian: hoor
Greek: πόρνη
Hungarian: kurva
Indonesian: pelacur
Italian: puttana

That'll get you past the govt screening process

of course you may just want to name it "No Foul" !

I Would Think That A "clean Whore" Would Be More Acceptable

As Fstbttms pointed out, YOU are the one gonna be on
the radio saying "This is The Filthy Whore on 16". What's the state got to do with it ? It would surprise me if you couldn't document that name.
But I got to tell ya, seems like a rotten name for a good boat.

I always liked "Spreader Boots."

An interesting concept on the naming of the vessel that purports to carry you and all you hold dear over the horizon. I don't worry a lot about fate but neither do I go out of my way to tempt it. Pick a decent name that will show you're proud of your boat and give her a reason to be proud of you.

If she sinks on you in the middle of Mobile Bay feel free to dive on her and carve your childhood dream name across her transom. (g)

I can not help it, but my mind pictures the different situations that may arise if ever you need to call the coast station for help on the VHF:

"Filthy Whore adrift", "Filthy Whore takes in water", "Filthy Whore grounded", "Filthy Whore demasted" etc.
