Names often differ by culture.
American boat names
are often kinesthetic phrases invoking their feeling of the boats intention: Island Time, Happy Hours, Carpe Diem, Moonlight Serenade, Sol Surfin',
often have tradional place type names, womens names, natural alusions: Whitebird, Janika Lycka, Reflections of Hayling,
Australians have a bit of a mix, and include Aboriginal names Wadrigal for example, Malua, Walkabout, Ngoombujarra
Canadians often have place names, innuit words, or similar to USA names.
USA and English
have a lot of women named: Lady Caroline etc But Australians dont go in for that so often.
Then theres an equal splattering of nautical terms: Meridian, Horizon, Compass
Americans especially, but Canadians and Aussies too get into humour: Earthling, Asylum, Where II.
In the USA theres lots of sleazy boat names
Big Shot, Ship Happens, etc. But once outside the USA they must paint
the stupid names out.
