I like the idea of naming your boat after a fish or other sea creature. What could be more appropriate for the thing that is going to carry you through the waves, darting about the water like a dolphin.
Victor Mallet of FT.com today posted a great story about boat names, particularly focusing on a boat called Arapaima. The Arapaima, which also goes by the name of pirarucu, is a freshwater fish found in the Amazon that can be as large as 10 feet long.
Mr. Mallet's advice on naming a boat involves something about underwear, so the article is well worth a quick browse if your trying to come up with a new boat name.
