The Tempest is my favourite Shakespearean play, grade 11. I taught it a couple of times as well.

Be careful trying to register Ariel as a name. They are at least up to Ariel XII, I have sailed that one.

Quick quiz - what is first line from The Tempest? Anyone?

Okay, serious.

Our first boat we named "Harbinger" - when we bought it, we knew it was our family's starter, learning boat and we intended on eventually getting a larger boat, moving aboard and going cruising.

So we began looking for a name for our bigger boat, and found in, of all places, in a US Power Squadron marlinspike manual. It described the Japanese Success Knot as looking like a plus on one side and a square on the other and that those two symbols in cuneiform made up the word Kanau (pronounced Ka NAH oo) which meant a dream or desire realized.

So we have not only our boats name, but a signature know to go with it. (Some have made a pun out of it, calling our Morgan Out Island 41 "The Big Canoe" )

Check out our 'Naming Your Boat" page on Frugal Mariner.

Ceol Mor is Gaelic for "big music" it refers to classical bagpipe music. Proounced Kale-More. My husband is both Scottish and a bagpiper so it fits.

His name suggestion was "uisge beatha" which means water of life/whisky and the closest pronounciation is uska-bear(sort of ). I told him the chances of anyone recognizing it on a distress call and me being able to get it out phoenectically were somewhere between slim and none. He realized I was right and went with my suggestion!

Our Person 28 - "Aeolus" which means Leisure in Scotch Gaelic
Red Ericson 35 - "Cordelia" which means jewel of the sea
Our current Caliber 40 - "Carina" which is a constellation of the keel of the Argo.

One we saw this summer:
A Mac 26x named "Over Easy"

Nepenthe

In the Odyssey, Nepenthe is a magical potion given to Helen by an Egyptian queen. It makes you feel good and forget your sorrows.

Aythya is simply the genus name for a canvassback duck. One of the favorites that I've seen on the water is, "Hoosier Daddy".

Brilliant!


Miss Muffet is from an old rhyme. No spiders have frightened her yet.

Penelope is after Penelope Pitstop and certainly lives up to her name. She'd been good at getting out of some tight jams but last time, I did have to cry "Hayulp! Hayulp!"
