Boat Naming/Renaming Again !!!

I think I need the advise of the sailing experts on this one.
My current boat was renamed after purchase. We were very careful on all the ceremonies etc., except my wife would not go along with the virgin part.
As do most people with a boat we dream of another.
The problem is we really like the name we chose for our current boat.
Aside from the pros and cons of renaming a boat, is there any problem with naming your second boat with the same name. The suffix "two" after the name does not sound good.
Our first would be sold, so we would not have two in the water, and all the ceremonies would be conducted properly ( I still don't think I will have any luck on the virgin part).
Your opinions will be greatly appreciated.
David

No problem...use the same name over... Just remember to follow John Vigor's Interdenominational De-naming Ceremony. No virgins required for it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The marina where I winter my boat there is a boat with the name " Won't sink II". I wonder what happened to Won't sink I.

Nearly sank... but didn't... that's why this one is the "Won't Sink TOO".
