RE: What's in a name?

Always On My Mind was originally named Royal Salute, and upon purchase the Admirable (intentionally misspelled) and I thought about the jestures we might receive so we decided to change*the name. We found out from the previous owner at the closing that Royal Salute is actually a very expensive scotch.*
I wanted to*name our first trawler after my wife, she wasn't real receptive to that idea and she said just name it Always On My Mind, because she and*having a*boat had indeed been always on my mind. I also sing Willie Nelson's version of that song at Karaoke venues, and while my wife and I were dating I would occasionnally get on her badside; I would phone and she being mad at me would let it go to the answering machine. I would start singing that song to her, and then ask her to pick up the phone....Thankfully it worked (several times actually)*

RE: What's in a name?

Our 46 Grand Banks Classic is called "Grande Jete`". My wife was a dance teacher for 30+ years, and she*named the boat. We also owned dance studios for over 30 years. Grande Jete` is a french term for a ballet move, meaning Big Leap. Buying a 46' Grand Banks was indeed a Big leap for us. We have enjoyed the info, and opinions on this Forum as we*work on*our latest* project.
Thanks,
Chuck Smith

RE: What's in a name?

Wish I had some clever little story to tell on how we came up with our boat name, but alas, my brain just wasn't working, SO....I came to all of you (you guys and gals probably don't even remember) last July, and asked you 'all to help me come up with a name for our new old 34' CHB, and told you that it needed to be law enforcement related as my hubby is a retired deputy sheriff. One of the responses was "Wuzz-a-Fuzz; hubby and I both howled over it and decided it was perfect, so there ya have it.

On a side note, I've always thought a good name would be "Don't Panic", would be perfect for me as I'm the queen of panic.

What's in a name?

*Don't Panic. *I like that one.
I think it was Hollywood who said panic early and avoid the rush.

Hiya,
** Not to hijack the thread or anything but "Don't Panic" brings back memories of a british comedy called Dad's Army.* Don't Panic was the first thing yelled out by one of the characters played by Clive Dunn.* Used to watch it on PBS.*

Our previous Prime Minister, twice removed now, John Howard, (you know - Dubbya's right hand man, or so he said), put out a statement not long after 9/11, suggesting the general public need not*panic...but to be "alert, but not alarmed".....
I use the saying often to my patient's now to reassure them when we do screening tests etc, but on reflection it would also be quite a cool boat name....?

********************************* Alert But Not Alarmed
....could work....?
