It's all in the Name

While Alan and Paul keep fiddling around building our sailboat (pictures and updates here), I've been working hard at thinking about a name. This is not an easy task.

Ideas coming from Paul and Alan all seem to have Star Trek themes, or worse. One name references Sponge Bob Square Pants; Krabby Paddy, I don't get it?. On Paul's short list there is even 'Dawn Patrol' and 'Looking for Dawn'.

My current favorite is Dragon Fly. The double wings of a dragon fly work well with the boats double masted cat ketch sail rig. And the name will easily allow a nice graphic logo on the boat.

Funny we don't feel the same need to name our possession, but boats - especially sailboats - have to be named! My own 22' sailboat sloop was named 'Marik', an Inuktitut suffix denoting something superlative. I like 'Dragonfly'. I suppose it will make those who sail her, 'Dragonfliers', which I also think is interesting.

Venus and Mars senerio / man vs. woman - good luck with naming her!
