21 Funny Boat Names For People Who Love Puns.

The tradition of naming boats goes back a long time. In the past, people gave unique names to their sea vessels, often inspired by gods, to protect them from bad luck. Even today, when you choose a name for a new ship, the naming ceremony is detailed and intricate to ensure a safe first journey.

If you’re into sailing just for fun, the naming of recreational boats might be a bit more relaxed. However, we don’t think “Boaty McBoatface” is a serious choice for asking the gods for good luck, though it sure is a funny name.

Why naming a boat is such a big deal?

Choosing a name for your boat is a nice tradition that might have started with the Vikings, who were tough seafaring warriors. They believed each boat was like a living being, so they gave them cool names such as Huggin’s Wave Steed (named after Odin’s raven) or Skidbladnir to honor Freyr, the god of fertility.

If the traditional way of naming boats doesn’t convince you, there’s also a legal reason to do it, especially for commercial boats, as the U.S. Coast Guard requires it.

In short, naming your boat isn’t just an odd tradition or a way for captains to seek good luck from the gods. Yes, you should definitely name your boat, but mainly because it’s a fun thing to do. If you’re interested in learning the rules for naming your boat and how to come up with good names, keep reading the next section where we’ll discuss just that.
