funniest name I saw on a boat was a beuatiful twin engined speed boat called 'Goody Two Screws'.

I love the name the gArfish has called his boat. 'Euronobber'

mine are all called after musicians or songs

'Stevie Rayvon' Avon 5.4
'Bugle Billy' Avon 8.4
'Wake Up Call' Scorpion 6.5
'Wont Get Fooled Again' Camel Ribtec

My next boat is gonna be called Dynamo Hum or Freebird

There was a sailing cat in Emsworth called "Cathy's Mink" which was replaced by a bigger one called "Cathy's Sable".

I can only asume that Cathy does not know about the boats.

Boats I have sailed on include:-

Freelance, owned by a journalist
Prime Cut, owned by a butcher
Protem, owned by a solicitor
Warp Factor I to VI inc., owned by a prat
Xaviera, a Hustler 32 named after Xaviera Hollander aka "The Happy Hooker".

Hope that these add to your inspiration.

There was a charter fishing boat in Whitby we chartered for a film as a camera boat called "The Next Generation" - his previous boat was called "Star Trek"!

Saw an excellent dive RIB named Unnecessarry Faff, we appreciated the bravery of this step and went over to talk to them, apparently it is actually on all dive RIBs but is usually in invisible ink!
