My parents bought a new boat since selling their old one seven years ago and they are STOKED!!! They really deserve this and have been looking forward to it and saving for a long time. They need to register it very, very soon and need a name ASAP and have asked me to help think of a name, but they have some strange and picky requirements. In desperation I’m turning to the bees to play the name game!
1. Needs to be one or two words, maybe three if they’re short and easy to say. The boat’s name will be read over the radio a lot and it has to be easy to say clearly and understand
2. My dad is a pharmacist and they’d like to either reference his career (like “pharmasea” but that one is too popular) or my mom’s name, Jane.
3. They like nautical puns
4. They don’t want anything too popular
Yeah, picky I know. Here were my suggestions, all of which were turned down:
Sea Jane Run
Any suggestions appreciated!

These are great!! I sent them this list, they asked to see more! Especially ones with “Jane” in them somewhere, that’s what my dad’s leaning towards (their first boat was called the Sarah Jane, that’s her full name even though she goes by Jane, but they’re looking for something more clever and nautical this time).

Jane’s Reef Ills
My ex used to call his boat “hole in the water to throw money into”

They’re just so picky! They’ve got all these friends with boats and they’re all competing with each other to have the best and the most unique and clever names. They liked Seascript Take With Water and My RX but they’re still deciding
Apparently my mom didn’t want this boat named after her since she already had the first one named for her so she likes the pharmacist ones

My suggestions might be lame, but I’ll give it a go anyways 😉
