Re: Need a New Name !

We name cats though they don't usually come when called. It makes us feel more like the owner instead of the owned. Perhaps it's the same with boats. My last cat called me Meow and I always came when called.

Re: Need a New Name !

I named my boat "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious", but most the letters fell off so now she's just simply "X".

Re: Need a New Name !

I had been playing with the name "Bona Fortuna" (Good Luck) But it is also the name of a fishing outfit that has a logo and all (I guess they go after Tuna). I believe the name will be "Nomad" but I'm dithering on "Nomad" or "The Nomad". I am also looking for how to say "Nomad" in other languages that still sounds good. Unfortunatly "Nomad" in most other languages comes out as "Gypsy" but not in the way we in the US think of the word. More of a homeless begger/thief.
