Tips for Choosing a Great Boat Name

Creating an excellent boat name is as easy as thinking of some of your favorite things:

  • List your favorite colors or shades of your boat’s color (as we did above). A boat name that reflects your favorite color may be right up your alley (or stream). Once you list your favorite colors, branch out to alternate words that mean the same as or describe your favorite shade or the color of your boat. For example, if your favorite color is red or you have a red boat, you can use words like “Ruby” or “Crimson” in your boat name.
  • Use just one word or combine several. If you find lesser-known words that describe your favorite shade, obscure boating terms, or nautical-themed words, a one-word name may work just fine. If not, try using several words in various combinations. Be as humorously and inventively creative as you like.
  • Look up lyrics, books, and quotes for inspiration. Favorite songs, books, and sayings are excellent places to find potential boat names. Instead of using lyrics or quotes as they were written, try switching them around and/or adding or subtracting other lines and words to them for a totally unique-sounding boat name.
