CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
When I owned a Sparkman & Stephens design I had a cat named Stephens, but back then everyone heard of Cat Stephens. How about "Sparkman"?

Am I the first to think of "Catamaran"? Or was it too obvious?

My old Maine Coon McAllister. Snarly nasty fella but smart as a whip. When my alarm would go off in the morning if I didn't get up right away he would headbutt my arm until I got up.
Figured this out all on his own. ALARM=Dave gets up.

We had a friend who named his cat Fender.

My wife always named her pets after astronomical figures so our current cat needed a nautical one once he moved on board. She decided on Neptune since it was astronomical and nautical.

A friend used to name his cats after his favourite draft beers.(these are all English beers)So there was Theakston;Boddington;Hartley plus after the German lager Stella.
My cats-well Puss Puss and Little Puss-both strays to which we didnt want to get attached. Puss Puss a black and white was with us 14 years until his death at 20 something last year and Little Puss who came to us as a half grown stray hence the name is now 15!

You could always name it after a place you have sailed to. One of my dogs is named Bimini.
