Boat Name of the Day for Friday

WILD GOOSE - John Wayne's yacht is on display at the Lido Yacht Expo in Newport Beach this weekend, so it's only fitting that we chose "Wild Goose" as the boat name of the day for Friday.

Speaking of John Wayne and names, here's a little trivia for you: John Wayne was named Marion Robert Morrison when he was born, but his parents soon changed his name to Marion Mitchell Morrison. They named Marion's little brother Robert and I guess they wanted to avoid any confusion. Maybe they should have just started calling young Marion "John Wayne" when he was little! :-)

Previous boat names of the day this week were:

Pair of Jacks

Waters Edge


We pick our daily names from customers of our two boat name stores, BoatNameGear and CustomBoatNames, as well as from boats of interest that we see on the water or in the news.

We announce The Boat Name of the Day on Twitter every weekday. Suggestions are welcome via email, but you must share the story behind your boat name.

If your creative juices are flowing and you're full of boat name ideas, please help another boater name their boat at the Boat Name Blog.
