    The origins of yacht names seems to be a popular subject. Recently, there was speculation on the meaning of the name "Izanami", a Lurssen built yacht currently named Ronin. Some interesting trivia came from this thread.

    You might expect to see this name on trailer boat, but on a yacht? I dunno!

    One name I'll always remember was a motor yacht in Rhodes, Greece years ago. "Well Bread". Maybe Abramovich should use it. If he does, I want my commision!

    Is there a historical "norm" to naming yachts.

    I heard that traditionally it was "First daughter's given name; second daughter's middle name". ie. MARY JANE

    Most boats do have female names.

    This pre-supposses that you have children, daughters, etc. but I am curious as to the history of boat names, and in fact why the practice even arose.

    Good questions that will hopefully provide some interesting trivia. I once heard...

    "You should never name your boat after your wife... because you might sell your wife".
