Need Name Ideas

I'm not one for cutesy names but after several weeks of thought we stuck. Spouse wants Serenity which I agree IS a great name but is VERY common. I don't care for common. The feel we seem to be going for is something in the musical or peaceful realm.

Some finalists but not chosen:

Somewhere in the sun (too long)
Carribean Dreams (spouse doesn't like feel)
serenity
Sheet music

Any suggestions? I plan to look at constellations this afternoon.

Re: Need name ideas

Are you renaming or is this a new vessel?

Possibly renaming. If nothing works it stays as is.

Re: Need Name Ideas

Do you give this boat it's current name?

Re: Need Name Ideas

In the musical realm: Duet or Lullaby. If you have alot of wood on the boat: Woodwind


I always thought Sundial would be a good name - somehow peaceful and calming.

Re: Need Name Ideas

I like "sheet music." Serenity has been done. Way done.

My next boat will be called "West Marine." That way, all my crew will already have monogrammed jackets.

Re: Need Name Ideas

I suggested "Afternoon Delight".

Admiral nixed it. Dunno why...

This reminds me of the 'Dreamweaver' suggestion. I don't need song stuck in my head! :-)

Re: Need Name Ideas

Naming the vessel after your current wife is a bad idea, the vessel gets jealous of the wife or vice versa causes disharmony in the universe.
