|killarney_sailor||Perhaps you should stick one of those LED message boards on your transom and then you can keep changing the name as your mood varies. Then you could accomodate such fine boat names as "My Love" and "Damned Boat!"|

I think Fred would be a great name for a boat. Not MY boat, but maybe yours.

|Connor72||Choosing a name is definitely important, so that you will like it when you hear it in the following years. I wonder what you think about simple single-word names like "Lily"?|

More important than most people realize

|gpwil3847||My 1967 Morgan 24 also needs alot of work to bring her back. I could not believe anyone would name a boat "Minnow Paws" with a paw print separating the two words! Who would name a boat after a body function or dysfunction?? I settled on Felicity which means happiness. I think of the British Actress Felicity Kindal who played in the 12th night - when I was younger I thought she was very pretty. I am not good at naming a boat either. I once named a little racing day sailer "Woden" after the scandinavian war God - but the locals called it "wooden" oh well.|

|ChristinaM||A recommendation that came out of one of the bad storm race investigation (I think either 79 Fastnet or the 94 Queen's Birthday Storm) was that boat names should be no more than two words long. One of the boats involved had a mouthful of a three word name so I'd guess three short & simple words would be okay.|

|bgenader||Thank you all for your welcome and suggestions. I had not thought of the importance of the name being understandable, particularly in case of a rescue.|

I agree with WanderingStar. Make sure you like how your boat's name will sound when broadcast over a radio. Not only that, make sure it's a name that rescuers can easily understand.

Welcome to sailnut.
Does your C&C currently have a name?
If it does and you don't like it then change it.
Here is one website that talks about changing the name of a boat: How to Change Your Boat Name without bad luck
There are lots of others out there if you google: "boat name changing" or similar.
