Depends. Are you superstitious? Do you like to hold a good party?
If so, it's an unnaming and a naming ceremony. If you are supertitious or don't like to throw parties, don't worry about it , buy the extra lettering and slap it on the stern.
Personally, I like a good party so I would unname her and then rename her. This will also give you the opportunity to see if your refrigerator
