I'll second that! Plus it avoids the pun-based boat names and is classical in nature.

Speaking of Greek names indicating beauty, two others come to mind:

Callipygia, the name of a particular Tayana 37 but would have been more appropriate on a boat with a canoe or round stern.

Kallisti is also appropriate for several reasons.

I like the old Fidelity (I think) commercial:

Teenager opens a letter and starts squealing because she just got a full scholarship. The next scene shows mom and dad leaving the dock on a big power boat. The stern shot shows the name on the transom:

"College Fund"
