It is a fun exercise, a clever name.
My mother in law is a sweetheart. She really tries hard to get me gifts at Christmas
and such that match my interests. It is hit (Stanley #4 handplane made in GB, circa 1950), and miss (some piece of crap 3 wheel
bandsaw) but either way she doesn't just write a cheque. So I came up with "Wealthy Elsie" as a potential boat name to honour her. Her maiden name is Rich, and her first name is Elsie, though she hates it and goes by her second name. This one will probably get nixed as I don't think I want the word "Wealthy" on the side of my boat in a public marina.
Another contender is "semicolon". I leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure this one out.
