Creative Tender Names

Would like to see some creative names for dinghies. Always hated that "T/T to Obnoxious Rich Guy's Yacht."

I'll start with one I'll never forget. The mother ship was Summer Love
the tender was
Spring Fling

I'm sure that the far-flung members of the forums have seen other memorables. Why not submit your favorites?

If I may toss my own into the mix: the tender for Nomadness is Nomadling.

Ours is affectionately called BelliBoat... Our two Westies are named Belle and Beau and called BelliBo. They love the dink and it fits them so I think of it as the Belliboat.

More sad than creative ....but an oil rich prince named his Superyacht “Tits” and the tenders were “nipple one” and “nipple two”

Some of ya guys are just too clever.
Too smart and trying to make a statement that is just soooo clever.

What is wrong with just enjoying the waters, the island and the boat ya are on...Including an old-fashioned name on the boat and the tender.

The big yachts named "Passing Wind", "Lucky Sperm" and "Tits" this and that just shows no class and no nautical experience on the owner.
Perhaps the shallow folks in Las Vegas would enjoy that sh!t but I would rather not see it in my anchorage:
Amateurs Go Home......

My boat neighbour has a launch called Romeo and his tender is Romeover.
Our boat is Leisure Lady. Haven't thought of a name for the tender. Any idea's?? working Lady just doesn't sound right.
