the names.  Following is a list of names I’ve seen on on East Coast US AIS the past few days  .  . . some in far-off places but what evocative names!!  I’m NOT talking yachts.  These are container ships, tankers, and bulk carriers.

Red Lily, Angelic Power, Tango Sea, Atlantic Tramp, Silver Soul, Ivory Girl, Pink, Billion Trader, Romantic . . .    Wow!!  There’s nothing routine or lackluster or sinister about those.  Who in a company comes up with these?  I’d love to hear what “off the air” commentary gets expressed about these names.  What is the most memorable vessel name you’ve ever seen?

Do you have any favorites?
