Altho, personally, not sure that adding the "II" at the end would be an issue, as the main part of the name is the same. ...

Marty
As a boat in the Canadian Shipping Registry, the boat's name must be unique in that registry. Adding a "II" or a "IV" is acceptable as a way of making that name different from another similar name. In all likelihood there was already an "Artful Dodger" registered.

We had a boat called "Phantom V" for the same reason... we simply chose to ignore the "V" except in official paperwork (the Blue Book) and a very subtle "v" on the transom.

I'd agree wtih Marty that no ceremony would be necessary, nor insult or peril risked for simply appending those numbers...
