Ok...I think I'm down to 3 contenders:

Ajax- (there were two in Greek mythology)
Auris Popularis- Latin for "Popular Breeze"
Dies Non- Latin for "Business-free Day"

Named my first boat, and old wooden Magyar 7 'Double B'..... when asked why my reply would be..... Broke n Brainless.... because that's what I was... Broke after I bought her.... and Brainless as to how I'd get the money to fix her up...
But I did... and enjoyed a couple of great years cruising the UK's South Coast and the Channel Islands.....
I'm sure after sailing her for a while she'll 'inspire' you in some way... they usually do.... or is that an idiosyncrasy of 'Solo Sailors' who think their boats talk to them.... I find mine 'sing' to me... each with their own different tune..

How about Agua Dulce..... Sweet Water

From a slightly nicer perspective, my daughter inadvertantly came up with a name for one of my boats when she said to her mum, stand in front of a mirror and mouth the word "elephantjuice". It looks like you are saying I Love You. That was it, the Melges 24 race boat we had just bought became Elephantjuice!

Whatever you pick, keep in mind that you'll have to use it on the VHF. Short 'n sweet is usually better IMO.

Yes, I'd already considered that. I don't think my top 3 are too long, though I could shorten Auris Popularis, to just "Auris" (Latin for Breeze).

I think I'll add "Festina Lente" to the list. It means "Make haste, slowly".

Aldo Manuzio (or Aldus Manutius) invented a new typeface (Italic), which defined a style of layout that is still a wonderful example. He also developed a new way of choosing and managing content. In one word, he invented publishing.

This was his trademark:
