Don't really want to be doing this...But! Names?

I'm having terrible trouble selecting a name for my Vipermax "Project Blue Venom".

This was not a serious name, just selected it after watching Spiderman III at the Cinema.

I have tried every combination of name with the word "Blue" in, have tried to make a name from my families names too. Nothing seems to feel right. I can't be taking her to sea without a name, that would be bad luck.

I've got writers block

So...I'm asking anyone that reads this to have a little think for me please.

I would prefer it if the name hasn't been used before on a boat and would like a play on words, like "Mind Games" or "Crime Pays" or "She's got the House" or whatever.

So get your thinking caps on and come up with a name please.

How Hard can it be

That's a tall order!

"The Mistress?" as in "I'm on the..." or "I'm out with"...

I like the Blue Streak one, as that was the rocket motor that was tested on the IOW in the 60's

That's quite a common one Matt, you'll have to do better than that

My missus wanted me to call it "Third Degree" or "III Degree". Trouble is, she's such a lovely person is my missus, that it would have been named on a lie.

You're really making me chuckle tonight

"In/Outlaws escape"

This is a handy little tool for looking at what you've selected printed on the back of a boat Graphics
