I've renamed two of the four boats I've owned and never had any problems with any.
Two names I kept Guinevere and Fancy Free cause they fit the boats , the boats were happy with them and I liked them. Named Fancy Free's dinghy Footloose (stupid, stupid, stupid).
My C&C 40 was named Puff when I bought her and she was not a happy boat. Changed it to Satisfaction and had a long (18 years) and successful racing and cruising career with no more than the normal problems.
My current boat was named Invention. We had a long discussion, my lady, the boat and I and changed it to Enchantress. So far no real problems.
One other thing, any libations involving boats should involve rum, the best you can find. :D
